Crazy 8! It’s a night for 9!

I have two more square photos for you.

There are still 3 more to block and show you (remember, this is a lap-sized blanket), but 9 is officially enough to start seaming. I played around with layout a bit, and Jacob helped.

And after fiddling around a bit, I decided on a way to join the squares. I’m doing single crochet, but done so that the “seams” point out toward the RS of the work. I like the definition the ridges give the finished blanket.

I love the way this is feeling. It’s soft, it’s light, but it’s incredibly warm. I think my grandmother will really enjoy it.

I’m not sure what to do about the border–thoughts? I flipped through my copy of Knitting on the Edge, but the thought of picking up hundreds of stitches along each side is giving me hives.

I leave you with a picture of the Fibonacci Hoodie in action:

Knowing my hand-knits are loved and used is one of the better feelings in the world.

  1. I like that idea of raised ridges at the seams! I never would have thought of that.

    I had the same issue with the edge. I went through Knitting on AND over the Edge, and checked out all of the edges that are knitted on, but was stymied by the corners. Every attempt I made at neatly turning a corner ended in a mess, so I just did single crochet twice around the edge. It neatened it, anyway.

    I llove Jacob pictures! And what a sweet little girl!
