WIP-My first big project
I've never tried to do an adult size blanket before, so after some "encouragment" (aka:complaining) from my boyfriend i decided to try one. I don't know exactly how many stitches it is, but it's more than 230. I found to pattern in the book 200 knitted blocks. It's a very simple pattern 2 rows each color, blue is stockinette and brown is garter.
My "model" is my Staffordshire Bull Terrier Winnie.

Good for you! You will be so proud of it when it's all done!
There is nothing as gratifying as a hand knit blanket!
And useful!!!

I can't do anything with that many stitches! It's looking great though and I love the color combination!
