I really enjoy knitting and with each project I learn new things and try new things to develop my skills. I really had a lot of fun with this blanket. Unfortunately the slip stitch lattice pattern I did on the left white square pulled in the green center square, lesson learned. When I blocked it however, it wasn't quite so bad! I'll let you know if it places!
