I did it! I finished my second blanket. Well, it isn't really mine, it is currently en route to California as a house-warming gift. Did I mentioned I am happy-dancing around the apartment because it is finished? Oh, I am. You don't even know.
It wasn't difficult, this blanket. Each individual triangle was a cinch. Even connecting them as you go was a cinch. BUT. The connecting involved paying attention. You have to drop the loop and pick it back up so it wraps about the neighboring triangle --> you have to watch where you are putting the hook --> which means half the blanket cannot be accomplished while watching a movie or Doc Martin. --> I didn't work on it as diligently as I should have. --> it was the project that just kept going and going like the energy bunny, but with me energy-less --> and so I am happy-dancing it around the house since it is finally finished.
