A very pretty tree skirt was my first though! Boo boo or not, it looks nice. Thanks for posting the tips though. I catch myself already questioning patterns.

LOL. I think you're my kindred spirit.
Yes. I've never made a project exactly like this one. But in many cases I have needed this advice. I will trust the pattern in future.

One should be so lucky as to have such a wonderful tree skirt...it will be passed down for generations as the heirloom Christmas tree skirt :D I can't wait to see it under the tree

You are so sweet to post this. One of my first things was a totally embarassing baby blanket. Fortunately, I never took a picture!

I think you could use it as a wrap around blanket...head in the middle and wrap it around. I would love to have something like that to use on cold winter nights on the couch!

i kinda like it, looks like a nice shawl or a tree skirt and the colors give it a nice warm rustic feeling. I think it is worthy of display somewhere in your home or on yourself.

I think its beautiful! But I see your point... it was suposed to be a blanket. I think it would make a beautiful... Tree skirt!

I can relate!
Thank You for posting that and showing us your "afghan". I am a brand new knitter, teaching myself and going on a month now. My friend and I started a knitting group of all beginners. My first project was also a couch blanket, aka afghan! Well, I CAN RELATE!. I started it with straight needles, then switched to circluar, and it kept getting bigger and heavier. I learned, counting is vital, huh. Well once I took it off the circluar needles ready to finish it, I almost fell down laughing, or crying. The shape is quite strange, part circular, part something from outer space. No way is this a rectangle. Its also circular, and kind of resembles a very long shawl. The worst part is I used chinele in a beautiful greena alternating with green tweed. Well I think I learned I better learn how to follow a pattern and count.

So, thanks for sharing your story, I don't feel so bad. My husband loves it anyway, its really warm and cozy. :XX:
