I have been knitting a baby blanket. It is a large one.
While I enjoy knitting, this thing is something that I find strange. I knit blankets, and it seems like I start, it's fine for about 15 inches or so. Not a problem.
Then I measure, usually when I think I must have added another 5 inches to that.
15 and 1/4.
So, I buckle down and knit. Don't move for what seems like hours. I half expect my fingers to bleed, and my eyeballs to dry to dust...
So, I am about up to 36 inches at this point, the sides were larger than I want, (47 inches).
BUT, the blanket, I have decided, will not be square. I don't want to knit 11 more inches, in fact, I don't know if I've enough yarn. I will continue knitting for a bit, then finish, bind off, and deal with the small hole that occured...
3 $@@@ inches from the start!!!! Which, of course, I didn't catch...
Can baby blankets be malevolent? (shudder)
