  • Fisherman Rib knits up WIDE (hmmm… larger garment widths)
  • Watching the colors change is FUN!
  • All that practice of ribbing cast ons was sooo worth it!
  • If I had swatched …. I would have knit at a looser tension and the blanket would have been even wider
  • If I had swatched, I would have KNOWN how long it was going to be 🙂
  • Tubular bind off always takes longer than I expect … “Honey dinner has to wait until I finish this”
