Mulling A Restart
I'm fairly happy with my little herd of giraffes, but a couple of things are bothering me. I think my blanket is a bit narrow. Sure, I want a small blanket, but another giraffe in width would be a better size. I used the same number of stitches I usually use for a cotton baby blanket, but I think the wool is a bit thinner and that probably makes the difference. Also, I don't like the way the bottom edging is flipping up. Blocking would probably improve it, but really it needs to be knitted on a smaller needle. I know that if I go on, those factors will go on bothering me, so I had better just take a deep breath and unravel this lot.
