Yep, it is official. Emily and I are racing to see who can finish their mitered squares blanket first! Even though Emily is working on her blanket using much smaller needles and fingering weight yarn I am worried that I am very much behind her.
Whew, I better get cracking. Emily has 408 squares done and I have about 150. (If I'm generous I'm about 1/4 of the way finished with my blanket in worsted weight garter stitch squares.)
Just to let you know Emily's blanket looks a bit different from mine because she is working her squares in stockinette stitch. The outer squares are still done in garter stitch to ensure the blanket lies flat when she finishes.
I think I better go knit...
