Wristles ~ Again

Just ripped out the ones I made last winter/early spring for me.  The thumb increase area is just TO BIG for me.  Here's a link with photo attached.  Plan on modifying the directions again and hope it works better for me.  Haven't seen any other design that I like.

Hope I can get these done quickly.  More baby blankets in the works!  This next one will be another panel blanket with stitches I want to learn how to do.  More to come on that.

Happy repeat knitting!

What else?

Another baby blanket.  Nothing fancy, all knit, back and forth, 85 stitches across till it looked done!   How is that for a "how to"?

Here's the finished project:
Yes, there is some subtle changes in coloring where I switched the skein.  Once again the dye lot got me.  Worse yet, the color was on clearance and was GONE!!!!!

So, moral of this story.  Buy at least two skeins as you can make a nice sized "receiving" type blanket with just two!

Should have paid more attention when I bought because the color difference, although same named color, was quite noticeable.  Hope I've learned my lesson.
