I just joined earlier, and wanted to ask something that's niggling me. I have a pattern from a magazine that's designed to be a first project. I made the piece okay, but it gives details of embellishing with a blanket stitch heart without telling how you do the stitch. The only references I can find show the stitch as edging, which obviously doesn't work for me in the middle of a square
I'm sorry you're not feeling well. Of course, it makes everything much harder than it should be. I was wondering if maybe duplicate stitch might be used just as well in your project. Sometime give this video a try.

Ty hon, that looks a good option if I fail at blanket. I have a faulty pituitary gland, which unfortunately makes days when I feel well remarkable. I think I'll put the square aside for now, then try the blanket stitch and otherwise the duplicate on a good day. It's just a garter square from my first issue of the art of knitting. The annoying thing is that I know it can be done as someone posted a pic of theirs finished perfectly on the site for it.
