I'm serious. Between the garter stitch which is already bumpy and all those seams any little stitch size errors aren't going to show. Take a look at the other blanket projects on the pattern page. No perfect and still beautiful. You aren't a machine you are a human who made this blanket with love.

Yeah, Jan's right. This can make you too too crazy if you let it.

Flip a coin? Free first? I think it's a matter of which one to do first maybe.

That's an adorable sweater! Thanks very much for the link. I can see one of these on a sophisticated baby of my acquaintance.

Here in the states we would use a waistcoat in the winter by putting a turtleneck under it. Layering, you know? So you can shed a layer if you get too warm.
