Bad Aunt Bookwoman

Posted in Fiber tagged , at 10:12 pm by bookwoman

Things have been a little crazy.  Just busy crazy.  And all good.

Big news is that I’m an aunt again.  We don’t know her name yet.  So, she shall henceforth be The Nameless One.  (My sister-in-law left Geek Boy a message earlier today, but between her fatigue and Geek Boy’s bad hearing, he couldn’t make out the name.)  Her blanket is almost done.  But, to be honest, I’m tired.  It’s been a lot of garter stitch.

Here’s where the blanket is now

It measures 26″x29″ right now.  There are two more blocks to do, plus the edging. 

So here’s my dilemma.  The nieces and nephew live a ways away, and we don’t see them very often.  If we get a chance to go up this weekend, it may be a while before we see them again.  So, I’d like to get this done “toot sweet.”  Which, to my garter stitch addled brain, means skipping the last two blocks and getting on with the border.

Does this make me a bad aunt?
