This is a photo of the first ever blanket that I made, (to be honest the first ever serious project I undertook). A stripey number for my daughter, over 9 years ago - I was pregnant and thought that this is what pregnant ladies do. Why I thought I would go for a stripey number I don't know...I could have started out with a solid colour but hey well, thats not me!!!!
As you can see, I had no idea what I was doing with joining the colours. Didn't know that I had to twist the different colour wool up the side of the blanket as I knitted, so I just cut the wool and tied them together as I went.
Baby didn't mind though..and well I kind of feel attached to it. Don't make this mistake though.!!!!
