Hi, everyone. I finished the lapghan for my DM but the photos I took just before wrapping it were not very good - I'll try to get a decent shot of it soon. I was extremely pleased to be finished with it - boucle was invented by the devil and it didn't help that I am a complete idiot
I got the brilliant idea that I'd knit three panels and sew them together. Well, it would have been brilliant if I had sewn the panels correctly - I noticed one panel was upside down while I was sewing and didn't think it would matter. It did! It looked just like the nap on velvet so I had two panels with the nap going down and the end panel with the nap going up. Added to that, the sewing pulled the panels in slightly along the seams so I muttered a few choice words and frogged the whole thing.
The lapghan ended up as one panel with a cotton backing. On the bright side, Mum loved it.
Has anyone else been knitting lately? I'm about to start on an afghan for my lovely aunt. (I know you'll think I'm crazy because this one is going to be boucle too but I can't resist a freebie
