Well, it's been a while since you all got to see any progress on the Garter Squish Cuddle Blanket, so here we go! We've fortunately had a cold streak here last week, and couple that with feeling a little under the weather for a couple of days, and I've made some actual progress on this.
That last blue and grey stripe felt like it took forever. When I started this blanket, I could finish a stripe in less than a day, but I was stuck on blue and grey for a while. I frequently encounter the phenomenon in knitting where as a piece gets larger, it takes longer to knit. Part of it is that it takes longer to see progress once it gets a certain size, but I think that my knitting slows down too, for whatever reason. At any rate, I'm on to red and blue now, and it's nice to see some progress again. I'm hoping to get a few more rows done on this before summer sets in for good, but we'll have to see how it goes.
