And the star makes 12 14.

In another bout of finishitis, I put the last few rows on this star this weekend. I love this blanket, and love that I got to use yarns in it from my grandmother and my mother-in-law to be (yes she’s de-stashing to me too!). The fact that the points look a little wavy is actually an accident a design element – I seem to have miscounted a little, but I like how it makes the star a little swirly.

This blanket also brings my year of charity blankets to a close. Apparently, I have a problem counting however. No one mentioned anything, but I appear to have gone beyond my goal of a blanket a month… there are FOURTEEN blankets in my Flickr photos. (that’s what you get when you have two #3’s and two #11’s) I played a little bit with Flickr collage to get the picture below. I hope these 14 blankets find their way into homes and provide warmth and comfort to 14 little babes.

1. Charity Blanket #1, 2. Charity Blanket #2, 3. Charity Blanket #3, 4. "The Blues" – Charity Blanket #3, 5. Peppermint Charity Blanket #4, 6. Stitch Detail – Psychedelic Granny Square, 7.

Now I just have to figure out what charity to knit for next!
