Now, for the Blanket that Rocks!!!
These are the blanket bits. That's it. Three skeins of heavyweight Socks that Rock, and that's all I have left. Luckily, I had the same number of strips on each side of the blanket!
Finished size, without the border, is 30.5" x 29", a little bit smaller than I had hoped, but still perfect for a lap blanket. It would be the absolute perfect size for a baby blanket, but this one is for me. When I make my next one, someday, I would probably try to have four colors total, then I think the size would be just what I wanted.
So now all I need to do is put the border around it. I have an extra skein of "In the Navy" (the darker color) and I'm going to use that all the way around. I just can't decide do I do a simple two row border or make the border half the size of each strip (there are nine garter rows in each strip, so I could do four or five rows)? What do you all think?
Proper blanket photo shoot to follow once the border is done! Hopefully by the weekend! xoxo Irishgirlieknits
