The blanket continues to progress and I’ve some more squares to write about:

Checked rib square
Rows 1-3: 2×1 rib; 4th row: K only.
Little Ladders Square
Have done this one before in another colour.
Fair Isle Heart square
I loved doing this one, although I didn’t follow the pattern properly. Some of the hearts should have been in reverse colours with a stripe behind, but I wasn’t paying attention and after I’d gone wrong, I decided not to undo it, but to leave it as I was going. I think I actually prefer it my way. I also had to do one less row of hearts, than was in the pattern. It would have made it far too long and nearer 20cm long rather than the 15cm it should be. I can’t understand why the pattern isn’t correct in that respect.
The Starsky cardigan is getting there too. Back, front and sleeves are done. Need to do the collar and sew it up then it’s done. I might get it done for Christmas after all!
I’m off to India on Saturday for two weeks, so no knitting for me for a little while. I wonder whether I’ll find any yarn on sale there?
