Once upon a time (in May), there was a knit-a-long organised by Rowan that offered 8 different patterns for 20x20cm squares. These were meant to be knitted one pattern per week, and so have a finished blanket within 2 months' time.
Fast forward ... six months: after a (small) hiatus, in order to knit/sew/cross-stitch other projects, I'm in the final laps of this - my first - knitalong!
I've managed to finish the first two patterns and I'm happy to report that they are all nice and pinned, slightly sprayed with water to highlight the pattern, waiting to be assembled:
Does this mean I may actually have the blanket ready by Christmas???
