Woven Baby Blanket
I finished the blanket I was weaving last night. I really like it and I still can't believe that I wove a blanket! (wove? weaved? wove I think... ??)
I did a quilt-type binding for the edges for stability. I like the way it looks with the cotton and the weave.
It turned out close to 40 inches square. It's a little shorter on one side due to uneven tension, but it's not terribly noticeable. The center line where I used kitchener stitch to attach the two pieces is noticeable but after washing the tension there worked itself out a bit so it's not as bad as it was pre-washing.
Overall, I'm really pleased with it. I need to secure some of the ends from color changes and tidy up some of the tension if I can but really, I don't think a first blanket could have turned out better for me.
Now, what to work on next... :D
