It's so hard to stop once you start knitting isn't it? I think we all understand that. You're right to take it slowly though, since things are feeling pretty good so far. I hope we get to see a photo of the finished blanket. Sounds lovely.
Thanks salmonmac. :-) yeh im using this baby aran yarn - http://www.deramores.com/robin-bonny-babe-aran-100g not sure if it makes much difference in blocking the squares? And should I block ALL the squares then or just the ones ive done in the white?
