I could maybe finish it up and use it for a tv blanket or car blanket for me...never to show it to others. But I think my creative use of crochet on the bottom (dark brown) row to even it up just makes it look very, very ugles....
Yet I still can't throw it out! Maybe I can donate it to a cat shelter.
Woodi, this blanket isn't ugly! Matter of fact, I rather like the color combinations you chose! If I were you, I'd frog that last outside wonky brown 'log', and pick up where I left of.
Logs shouldn't become taller in certain areas. This makes me think that you possibly put the blanket down mid-row for some reason, and when you came back to it you might have started knitting back over the stitches you'd knit before you were interrupted. Then when you reached the end, you turned the work and knit back over those stitches for the third time and then all the way to the end. That would make the log about two rows taller in the area that's too tall.
Anyway, a good frogging should reveal the problem and you can start fresh! Like a computer re-boot!
