Thing #2 is going to college this fall. I’ve knit or crocheted each kid a college afghan. I really left this one to the last minute. Kind of like cramming for a test. Maybe I was hoping it would knit itself.
I decided to keep it super simple and make it a garter stitch afghan in bulky yarn. She liked the Cascade 128 Superwash (Bulky: 100% Superwash Merino, 128 yards). The only request she made is that it have the letter E for her school. Her school colors are basically navy blue, cranberry, and white. We agreed on blue as the main color, a red E, and a white border around the E. Then I’ll use the leftover red and white around the border.
The graph paper was not to the scale of my gauge, so I “eyeballed” it. Not bad. Close enough for government as the expression goes. Does anyone know where that expression came from?
Tucker still likes to eat yarn. He has caught a small ball of yarn that fell off my lap. I’d say he has a rather smug look on his face, wouldn’t you?
There are 23″ left to knit and 26 days to knit them. If I keep to a minimum of an inch a day, I should be able to avoid weaving ends on the drive up.
