so, so happy I did this bind off on a purl row:

It allowed it to stay in the pattern quite nicely.

size 10 circular needles

For large afghan cast on 210 sts, for a small one cast on 144 sts. Pattern is a multiple of 11 sts + 1.

I plan on working on this on and off between projects until Feb :)

Call me superstitious… I am done minus binding off about 3 stitches… I am afraid to finish it completely b/c then my baby may think it’s time to come and I am not ready! :) So I will bind off those last 3 stitches when I feel ready.. or my water breaks…

2/2016 My son lost his special blanket :(
