I wanted to finish all the squares with crosses in this month, and some of the garter filling rectangles, which I've done.
I have 54 garter stitch ridges to knit, then I start joining. I'm going to wash this and wet block, in tows. The Noro has been lying around for years, and it's a little thicker than the Cascade, so blocking will help iimprove the look of the blanket too.
After blocking I'll join the rows together and probably knit I-cord around the edges as in the pattern. Hopefully this will be finished next month!
Meanwhile, as I'm going to be starting the Westknits Mystery shawl KAL on Monday, I'm going to try to work on my Hamamelis this weekend. Cria's second sleeve is estblished, good tv knitting. A nice simple knitting weekend ahead of me!
