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!
