Thanks for the suggestion. And it's just in time! I am ready to finish the hem tonight. The main part of the blanket looks like it will move along quickly. -- I hope LOL

I appreciate all your help! I ended up transferring the live co stitches to another, smaller, circular needle. Once I got started, it really went pretty quickly. My corners appear to be "off" by one stitch. I decided not to frog back, as I don't think it is really noticeable, and I was afraid of making the situation worse! LOL I took a picture of the corner, but the mistake may not show up. If I don't run into problems shaping the head, the project should move along more quickly now.

You've made some good progress here, and what you've got so far looks wonderful. Now which animal are you planning to make?

I don't think that is a mistake. The increases just do not quite match the centered double decreases. I love the progress you have made. Don't you just love the way the hem turns out so neat, and all finished at the same time?

I went back and looked at your photo again, and I see what you were talking about, but I don't see it as a problem. Where my corners seemed to be off was on the inside, where the increases did not quite match up. I did not see that as a problem, either.

You won't have any trouble with the head. The directions are very clear. I am really impressed with the head shaping design.
