CAL week 5 – a slight correction

Continuing this most enjoyable of projects this week, it became clear that all was not right on one side of my blanket.

Whilst one side of my blanket was nice and straight, I seemed to have reduced the left hand side by 3 stitches as it was defintely getting narrower. This was proven correct when I got to the end of the zigzag stitch and I found I was one zag short of a zigzag.

I could have just shown you this

and  kept the correction to myself.

But in the spirit of sharing here’s how I remedied the situation.

About lovelucie1

I cannot sit without something in my hands to sew, crochet, sketch etc. This becoming something of an addiction. In fact, I start to get twitchy if I am stationary somewhere, waiting for an appointment, waiting for my daughter, away with work, without some project to keep my hands busy. Minutes wasted make me anxious. This blog logs my progress to raise funds through my creations to feed my textile habbit.
