To recap, I first wrote about the Frankie Brown Camouflage 10 Stitch Blanket in this blog post. If you haven’t read that post, I suggest you stop and go read it before continuing. Go ahead, I’ll wait.
Done? Okay, I put the FB camo blanket down for the first-time June 2015 to focus on creating craft show inventory at the time. I did pick it back up briefly in September 2016, only to put it down again after a few rows to go back to creating craft show inventory.
Only once the 2016 craft show season was over, did this blanket become my sole focus and main project (11/11/2016). I was in the middle of Magic Yarn Ball #8-B.

Now, I should tell you that I had a self-determined goal to finish this blanket by Christmas Day. Alas, I did not. Magic Yarn Ball #13 was tied on Christmas Day, but it wasn’t until the next day that I finished this blanket. Being a day late in finishing wasn’t such a big deal.

I literally knit all day December 26, in order to finish that blanket. This blanket was a great learning experience in terms of learning mitered corners and using progress keepers. I’m giving my hands and wrists a rest before the New Year starts and I’m off creating craft show inventory once again.
If you’d like to knit this blanket, the pattern can be found on Ravelry.com.
