A Zig Zag Blanket


A week or so ago I had a long car trip....I wrote about it here and in those two days sitting in the car I knitted and knitted and unpicked and unpicked.

All in all a very fustrating time, and the reason for all that angst was the fact that I didn't read the knitting pattern correctly. I thought that it was so very simple and memorised it and then just carried on trying to adapt it myself...thinking there was a mistake in the pattern .

Duh, it was only when a good friend showed me that I had missed a KFB in the sequence of stitches that the penny dropped !

I feel SO stupid !!

Meanwhile I had cast on and knitted a few inches of another zig zig blanket...this one from the ripple stitch book that I have.


and now I am not sure whether to unpick this and cast on for the zig zag blanket or carry on knitting this...... maybe I should do both ?

We are still waiting for the baby to arrive....thank you all so much for your kind comments, it can't be too long now !

oh, the WAITING!!! Always such a special, if agonizing, time :^) The colours in your blanket-in-progress are absolutely beautiful and I think I would have a hard time putting it down...

Both blankets would be lovely!! But tht's a lot of knitting. What's the first book?

Yes,Diana , you are right, it would be a lot of knitting....too much at the moment perhaps. I still have lots of other knitting projects waiting to be finished.
The zig zag blanket is on Ravelry and is also in the magazine called The Knitting Collection.

The colors are delicious. I just sewed a slipper inside out--what is going on???!! Actually, that's not that unusual for me. Baby and Mom will love either, I think, but it's a big investment of time, so you should do what you will most enjoy.
