After buying it, the question of what to do with it arose, and after a little thought I decided to try a Debbie Bliss knitted small blanket/wrap pattern. I've been working on it fairly steadily (with, admittedly, a couple of short breaks) since then, and I just finished my fourth skein. I guess that means I got through about 200 yards a month, or
I've knitted 356 rows, and the blanket is about 63 inches long at present.
The remaining work is: 34 rows, then casting off, then weaving in all the ends.
So I guess I'm in the home stretch.
Next up: a small bag. The pattern calls for one 90-yard skein. (I have the skein picked out; it's one I got for my birthday eight months ago. theresat spun and dyed it.)
Apparently there are small, quick patterns, and then there are patterns designed by Debbie Bliss.
