Thank you for all the input yesterday. I have decided to put the Arachne yoke aside. I think I’m done with it but I’m leaving the door open just in case I’m not. I have a full bag of the gray Plymouth Encore so there is more than enough for both projects should I change my mind.
The photo above is the start of the baby blanket. I’ve decided to knit a variation on Malt by TinCanKnits. I love the simple design of this blanket. The garter stitch is squishy and the stockinette is smooth. I like to imagine a toddler running their fingers over their blanket feeling the different textures. Right now I’m thinking I’ll change the pattern so that the blanket will have a large center rectangle of garter stitch surrounded by a border of stockinette and an outer border of garter stitch. But I’ll decide when I get there.
