I haven't posted to this blog since May (eeek!) but my excuse is a good one! Have been really busy with my gardening blog and as the weather grows warmer here by the day the knitting needles have been exchanged for gardening gloves! No real excuse I know, but I'm back now!
Have decided to try and join the world of the technically competent but uploading my plan of Millys blanket onto the internet and then posting it via a link here. Let me just explain that I'm NOT technically competent so please make allowances...... Here goes......
I hope that worked!!! The blanket is coming together well and I've only got about 8 squares to do (77 in total). When I come to sew it together I may change the layout but I've laid it out a couple of times and it's looking pretty neat.
Here are a couple more of the squares (with patterns).
MB = Make bobble. Knit into the next st 6 times (you should have 6 sts on your needle). Turn, P6, turn, K6, turn, P6, turn, K6, turn. P2tog three times (3 sts on needle). Turn. Slip 1, K2tog, pass slipped st over. (1 st remains).
Cast on 41sts and knit 5 rows garter st.
Pattern as follows:
Row 1: K5, (MB, K9) to last 5 sts, K5.
Row 2: K5, P31, K5
Row 3: K all sts.
Row 4: K5, P31, K5
Row 5: K all sts.
Row 6: K5, P31, K5

Row 9: K all sts
Row 10: K5, P31, K5
Row 11: K all sts

Repeat rows 1-12 until work measures approx 18cm. Work 5 rows in garter st. Cast off.
