So, I’ve been working on a gift for my SIL for her up-coming baby. It’s the Grabbit baby blanket/bag that I posted about a little while back. To make a longish story short, I didn’t do the bind off called for because I was out of town without the proper materials needed. I decided to do an attached I-cord later. Well, I did it. Problem being… I didn’t add any stitches when I did it. I just didn’t think. My brain went out for cocktails and left me to be an idiot. I just used the stitches that were there to be picked up, silly me. This is a circular blanket that needs to lay flat…(anyone see where this is going yet?) Since I didn’t add any stitches, the I-cord border is the same circumference as the blanket itself… Meaning that it can’t lay flat. In essence, I had started to knit straight up the sides, instead of making the circle wider… Started to turn a flat circle into a tube… It can’t lay flat. It.. Can’t.. Lay.. Flat.. THE F-ING BLANKET CAN’T LAY FLAT!!!!!!!! The baby shower is in four days. It took me six to do the border (I do have a job, unfortunately). I don’t have time to take the border off and start it again… So……I’ve cast on and knit the first 7 inches of what I hope is my fastest baby cardigan in the world.
Now… If you will excuse me, I have to go knit.
I’ve given up the baby cardi… I don’t want to give a baby cardi… We do have a store bought gift to give, so she will get that with a note that the Hand-knit gift will follow shortly, when I’m done fixing it. The baby’s not due for another month and a half anyway.
