Notes

4/19 Update: All done! Went with 3 needle bind off in the end. Like the look so much, I kind of wish I’d put the start on waste yarn so I could do the same bind off on both ends. Ah well. :)

In the end, I ran through Stargate SG-1 faster than the blanket, so it’s really a Stargate/Smallville blanket since I started making my way through that series after Stargate. LOL

I used this cast on so that one end is already “closed”. Will knit until I’m out of yarn or the blanket is long enough to cover my 6’ tall manlet, then will probably do a 3 needle bind off. Might consider kitchener, but that’s an awful lot of stitches for that!

My good friend gave me a huge bag of yarn, his grandmother passed & it was her stash of acrylic. Some of it is slated for The Linus Project, but a good portion of it is going into this blanket for one of the manlets.

Having never seen Stargate SG-1, I’ve been watching it online through Netflix as I knit this blanket, hence the project name. Hopefully I’ll have it finished before I make it through all the episodes.

April 3 update: took a break from working on the blanket while working on other special projects. Got back to it today & updated the picture/status. It’s almost 40” long now, still have 32” left to go, though I just might run out of yarn before then. :D
