I started when the pregnancy was announced and kept switching patterns because I thought I’d have plenty of time. The baby is already born, and my new goal is to get it done before Christmas. Of course, I picked a pattern that requires two strands of yarn to be knitted at once, so all of my skeins have to be unravelled and rolled into two balls. Plus, I have four more skeins to go. Christmas is fast approaching!!! Yikes!!! 2 years ago

How I did it: I just had to knuckle down to it. I normally knit in the evenings, and was often conscious that my partner equated knitting with his mum. But sadly she's not around to knit for Small Girl. I really didn't want to end up with boxes of unfinished projects, like my mum did, so that spurred me to do a few rows every day. Nothing is as good as tucking Small Girl in under it every night, even though it more sits on top of the other blankies. I want to crochet a stripey one for her next. So glad I didn't give up.

I’m doing 2 rows most evenings, occasionally 4. It’s good to see the blanket getting more blanket-sized. Hopefully little and often will finally see this done. 2 years ago
I’m getting there slowly. My girl has two doll cribs now so she can use the blanket for those if it’s too small for her (she was 9 months when I started it and she’s well over 2 now…) I remember my mum having bags full of unfinished projects and I am determined not to do the same thing. I am starting to wonder how she ever found the time to start all those projects though and understand why she didn’t finish them. 2 years ago
