One Monthly Goal

I’m squeaking in right under the wire with my goal for the month.  I just had some trouble deciding what I wanted to commit to.  Finally the decision was made – the goal for the month is to finish with the tail portion of the mermaid blanket that I am making for my daughter.  The final fin will be next and hopefully this will be done so it can be gifted for her birthday mid-February.

January One Month Goal-Mermaid Blanket – 55 rows complete

This is where I’m at right now – 55 rows completed out of 66 for the top portion.  After that there are 10 more rows for the tail portion.  I am hoping that I can complete all that by the end of January.

This Mermaid Blanket pattern by Nadia Fuad of YARNtopia can be found here.

I thought it would be fun to share my “notes” page in my projects book

When I’m done, I’ll enter all this information into Ravelry.  Wish me luck!!

This scarf has been off of the loom for quite awhile now!!

All I had to do was trim the fringe and cut threads.  But…it sat in the mending pile for months!!!  This will be a nice one for winter.

I really like the way this came out.  I love the contrast of the light and the dark.
