Country Fresh Blanket by Patons. She said - you can do this. What? And to prove to her that I am open minded and only half kidding about the "C" word, I said - alrighty then. We both picked out yarn (I chose Kenzie) and we started our respective blankets on Sunday. And this is what I've done so far with Jan's extraordinary patience. I have, however, taken a lot of razzing over the past week. Jo asked me if I wanted an awl since I had trouble getting my hook in a particular stitch. Very funny. I accused Jan of switching on me. I swear one time she showed me to put the yarn over the hook and another time, under it. She laughed and laughed and said there's only one way to do it right. Oye. She has, however, been very impressed with my diligence and yesterday, she graded my pattern. Apparently, I'm doing quite well and am the top one in my class, destined to graduate with honors. Now if you excuse me, I have a color-change coming up and get to use the dark blue!
