I really want to do well on this blanket but it's my weakest skills: knitting flat and crocheting edges! And blocking is a new concept entirely. :/ Well, onto number three I suppose! Maybe these will become wall hangings or something haha.
Guess we will see what size number 3 turns out ;)
This is my first time cabling flat, and first time blocking anything. Any feedback welcome!
And a side note: I got a 12 pack of Disney Cars foam floor/blocking mats for $11 at Lowe's today. They are actually super cute. I like better than letter shapes because many don't have cut outs, and if they do, they are pretty big, like a large center circle or square - doesn't get in way of blocking large things, and is actually kind of nice to block smaller items separately :D
This is my first KAL :) I really enjoyed this pattern. I've only been knitting for about 2 months so everything is new - lots of Googling but I think it turned out pretty well!
This is Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light - the colorway is most true in the picture of it blocked from above. A dark orange for fall.
I used size 4 circulars to make the whole thing because a few reviews said it was a bit too slouchy. I like the results - loose but not too floppy.
I'm not totally sure if I want the flower or not, but I think I will knit it up anyway and see how it goes - I need more practice working flat :)
PS: my bathroom smells like wet alpaca :/
