I finished knitting all my star points, took a tutorial and learned how to properly block, I cleaned my new blocking mat (one), I washed my star points in Eucalan wool wash and used a million pins to block all 10 of them. I took them off the the blocking mat yesterday morning and spent a majority of the day learning and stitching the mattress stitch and sewed all of them together! Ta Da!...........except for one tiny little error............I sewed too much.....up one side and down the other.........when in reality I should have only sewn halfway up the from the point on each side. Granted...the instructions did not specify but had I looked at the picture of the pattern it would have been fairly obvious........
So, you see, I really had no choice and when Becki showed the Happy CAL Place project of the kitty cat blanket I was a goner! See the little kitty cats? Aren't they cute? This project is fun, easily memorized and you only change colors every 3 rows.....LOVE!
I'm off to search out the next Christmas ornament to work on......it's July and I have 1 pair of socks done out of a dozen by the end of the year, I have no ornaments done out of a dozen by the end of the year.........I told you.........woe is me! LOL! I hope you all had a more successful week than I did!
