Revisiting Maplewing has been more pleasant than anticipated. It progresses well, and is a good project to work on while the Perianth blanket is on a short hiatus. It should be possible to finish knitting Maplewing by the end of the week, especially since about 60 (ever diminishing) rows remain and some trim. Not much at all. Here it is at the beginning of chart C.
Lorraine made a comment about the garter stitch border, which was taken to heart. I hadn’t really thought the whole mitred border thing through. Not really wanting to knit 700+ stitches and the required increases for about 40 rounds, the plan was changed. Again. The border is being knitted a side at a time. That Lorraine? Well, she’s brilliant, and I am thankful for the nudge.
