WIP: Grandma's Afghan
Here's a baby blanket I'm working on. I love this pattern, so much easier than the results look! I found the pattern on Knitting Pattern Central, of course. I'm making it in TLC Baby as a gift for a family friend. Hopefully, if I can get some serious knit time in the next couple of weeks I can get it finished.

Beautiful job. I used the same pattern with Kramer Summit Hill. Apparently I did not do a good job of fastening one ball of yarn, because after I washed it I had a hole in it the size of my fist. After I came to, I realized I had to rip out 18" and rework it. So the moral is, tie in your ends good and tight.

Mimi: That stinks! I always tend to overly secure my yarn joins. I was thinking about straight up tieing this one in and weaving each end in from there. It's going to Ireland so I want to be sure it holds up.
