C’est fini! Knitting blankets is not my favourite type of knitting. In fact, anything that amounts to a rectangle leaves me in a near coma—I need increases, decreases, short rows, a change in stitch pattern, anything at all to break up the monotony of knitting the same row endlessly.
This time around I decided to time each row with a stop watch. Striving to increase my knitting speed gave me an incentive to start the next row. And it worked! I finished the blanket and by the time I had gotten two-thirds through, I had shaved about 80 seconds off my average row time. I’m still a far, far cry from being a knitting speed-demon, but I’m a work in progress too!
