And You Get A Blanket



Yarn:  Cascade Ecological Wool
Needles:  size 10

It's nice when a plan comes together. Two really big balls of yarn. One set of needles. Practice of a tricky new cast-on method. Patience with a new pattern. Persistence with round after round after round of plain knitting. And after enough time passes, you get a blanket.

When I taught guitar lessons, I had a sign on the wall of my studio that said, "Practice. Patience. Persistence." That was the secret if you wanted to learn to play. It's kind of the secret to learning nearly anything.

What a lovely blanket. I'm so glad it worked out. You look cozy with it tucked around you.

Robin---a big thanks to you and my other Ravelry friends who have answered so many questions and cheered me on as I've learned so many new skills.
