After the last blog, I read the instructions, ALL of the instructions, even the last 2 paragraphs, of my Monkey Blanket. I'm not too smart; just when I thought I was almost done, I found that the instructions wanted MORE!
I was up to what I thought was my last round of border garter stitch, ready to bind off, when I discovered that all of my apprehension about the border rolling would be solved if I read the instructions. Instead of there being one layer of border, there are two which go back to back and then bind off. I bit my lip, pulled out 3 rows of garter, picked up another 546 stitches (but who's counting?), borrowed 2 more circs, knitted a 6 row pattern, and am now 2/3's around the bind off. FOR REAL!
It's going to be beautiful...

I haven't counted the number of needles I needed, but I'm using at least 9, borrowed from 6 gracious knitters! Thanks!!
