Knowing when to say "ENOUGH"


So I have this crochet blanket (not from a pattern, just alternating rows of single and double crochet) that was started sometime late 2002 using Lion Brand Pound of Love. I've used nearly 2 pounds and it is approximately wide enough for a twin bed and so twin bed size was my original target for length. However, I just don't think I want to crochet the last pound of yarn so I think I will stop it after the current skein runs out. My 5 year old daughter loves the blanket just as it is now and it is certainly big enough to snuggle with on the couch :)

Coming to this decision has lifted a big yarn monkey off my back! And so, I have great hopes for a productive 2008... Looking back on 2007, I am thankful for all of the KIP opportunities the local knitting group has provided -- without their encouragement I never would have started knitting socks!

I had an afghan I had started to make for my mother. 20 years later....I finally took it out and looked at it. It was certainly big enough. Cut off the yarn, wove in the ends and voila! a very old emotionally warped UFO was finished.

It does feel good, doesn't it?

looks like big projects don't have a end... If she likes it like that, just stop. One less project for you to worry about. The sock from the previous post is going nice. Can't wait to see it done ;)
