A new blanket

Well I said I would and so I did!!! 

I started another blanket.

Having made the first one I will tell you know that I learned a LOT. The one thing I did pick up from mistakes was that I kept losing my place - my starting point. This is why the yellow marked square (bottom right) has a thread running through it. It's to tell BC3 that that's where square 1 is. 

On the last blanket I had no idea where my starting point was after a while so I thought this idea or marking it with a strand of thread which I can later pull out may help. 

Again this is the site I used to help me and I still regularly check it out to see whether it's a square one, square 2, square 3 etc that I need to do next and WHERE!!!

I do that with my tatting- mark the right side. Especially when working with black thread which I think I shall be doing until 2021. Your squares look more relaxed this time round, you know what you're supposed to be doing!

Love the blocks of colour. Yes, that's a good way to make a marker that can be removed with no damage done. I like to do things a second time and feel more confident!
