Blanket Mo-Jo Has Returned

I am happy to say that I am back at the blanket making for Afghans for Afghans.  I got the final square (or so I thought) completed, laid them out, and guess who showed up for inspection:

Isadora wants to be sure that the squares are properly blocked, that’s it I’m sure. Of course, it could be that the square matches her eyes.

There are a few things to work out on this blanket – it has some odd-shaped squares.  One of them I’m giving up on completely because it’s not even close to being a rectangle.  Two others are too large.  One will be steeked, the other I’ve figured out a cute folding thing that will make it a feature.  So, one more square to knit, four to edge with crochet, and then it’ll get put together.

Now that I’ve started back on the blanket, I’m even looking at the sale yarn that I got at Bluebird in their summer sale.  I realize that I need to work on a new technique to have enough interest in the blanket.  So, I’m pondering that – maybe some knit 1 below for the whole blanket? We shall see.

And I am working on the shawl pattern.  I need to get all picky about making sure that the stitch counts are working, and take some good photos tomorrow.
