Sky Blanket, Complete!


The blanket is complete!


I finished it by adding seed-stitch rows between the squares and between the rows, and by crocheting (as best as I know how) several rows around the edge.
square borders: seed stitch
blanket border: crochet (kind of)
It’s just the right size for a lap blanket, and nice and warm. Considering the frigid temps we’ve had this last week, the warmth is welcome!

I have quite a bit of the yarn left, almost enough to do the project again this year. Good thing I’ve been keeping track of the sky again this month.

  2. For some reason I was having trouble figuring out how you would best 'showcase' the squares. This is an amazing job that works so well!! Having a son named Skye, wish I'd known you 35 years ago (oh, yeah, you weren't born yet...) and I'd have commissioned this as a baby blanket for him then! Nice work. No, BEAUTIFUL work.

    1. Thank you, Careyleah! I played around with the placement - even took it out once I'd connected several rows of squares. I'm pleased with it now.

    1. Thank you, Carol! I'll bring it out to the island when I come visit in April. It was so easy - great for the occasional knitter - if you're interested!

  5. Perhaps this year we can do an extended project - like we planned last year. ? You were stalwart to continue on your own, with no trees or ground!
    Nice job Tootsie.
