Looks like a fun project. Good luck with the second try!


Sorry you're feeling under the weather. My crafting has taken quite the blow lately. A sweater that I should've had finished by now has been languishing for over three weeks. It breaks my heart but I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things soon.

I'm sorry you've got the crud-bug again. My knitting world is getting antsy because Nerd Wars is starting on the 1st and I don't want to have any needles occupied that I might need for the challenges... lol.


Wow, that takes a lot of strength to be able to rip back a blanket like that! I'm not sure I could do it. It may have been just what the project needed though. Too bad it isn't done yet or you would be able cuddle under it while resting. Hope you fell better!


My crafting world is pretty much non existent right now with school, but congrats on taking a not so amazing WIP and turning it into something beautiful!


I'd seen that WIP on your ravelry page and wondered if you'd forgotten about it. I'm sure you will be very happy with the end result


Gosh, you are so disciplined. You'll definitely like the result more. I hope you feel much better soon!


Andi, you are going to have a beautiful blanket! I hope you feel better soon.


Looks beautiful. It's always better to re-start than let something sit unfinished or unhappily plow through.

(I've been enjoying hours and hours and hours of the Masterpiece Theater version of Jane Eyre ... you've inspired me to put on Lord of the Rings after this!)


nice going with the rip and redo. it's so hard to do, but if you didn't think it looked good now, you'd like it even less when you were done.

glad to hear you're feeling better now! hopefully you'll have a nice mitered squares blanket to cuddle under next time you're feeling under the weather :)

can't wait to see it when you're done~ i too, dislike projects that have mistakes and have a hard time finishing them~ i'm so sorry to hear you aren't feeling well~ sending hugs your way and wishing you better days soon!




Get better soon. We need you @ 100%

Love your miters. I have never tried that technique. But your project has inspired me. Now I only need a good tutorial, some beginners luck and even more courage.

Have a great week.


Hope you feel better now! Lord of the Rings is definitely the right movie to cheer you up! Usually before arriving at the end of the trilogy, I feel better too! :)

Happy knitting Andi!
Your blanket is going to be beautiful! Love this teal blue.


You were so right to rethink those gorgeous squares ... I think your blanket is going to be spectacular. Hope you're feeling better!


Thank you for the advice to take your time on a project and make it perfect. I really need to remember that for myself. Sometimes projects are rushed because the excitement is the finish. But I need to realize that sometimes the excitement comes in taking the time to make it right. :-)

Hope you are feeling better.
