Not much really! It is a loosey-goosey gauge!

I sure did! I 'take my medicine' as I go along, on all projects, not just this one! Oh how tedious it is to weave in ends ALL AT THE END!

You know, it really would be nice for a baby-on-the-floor mat!
Really nice idea, however, my baby days are long gone...and all my daughters and daughters-in-law have 'closed up shop'.

I'm now waiting for my 22 yr old granddaughter to open up shop! But first she has to graduate college, get married, and her biological clock has to GONG!

Good news though, she's engaged to a Hispanic young man, who's also in college, and I think he's a 'keeper'. It's serious, and we all love him. Hispanic men are usually thumbs up for having children! Oh, and his family adores her, too!

Here she is:


This is her beloved Jose.




She was my first grandbaby, and she was the only grandbaby for about 10 years. Then the other children started kicking in, and now we have a total of 10 grands, ages 3-12!

The first grandbaby is always special.

Artlady,

Wow!

Between your knitted and living works of art (i.e. children and grandchildren), you are just amazing! God has certainly smiled down on you.



The blanket is gorgeous as is your granddaughter.

Beautiful blanket and granddaughter!! Evocative of Mondrian's art -- the blanket, not the granddaughter
