The Franket

On Friday evening at 8:00 PM CST (6:00 PM PST), I drug the Franket out of the totebag it had been living in (drug as in past tense of To Drag - don't want to get the Olympic Doping Committee excited). I was in the middle of the dark chocolate block, officially known as Block 4 in the Franket Pattern Terminology. I have since completed Block 4 as well as Block 5 (the tan block along the top of the picture. A reasonably dry tennis ball has been included for scale.

I had a basic plan going into this (knit, keep knitting), but figured I'd better add a few more details just to keep myself on track. My goal is to complete Blocks 6, 7, and 8 by this weekend. Block 6 is about the same size as Block 5, but Blocks 7 and 8 are both longer and twice as wide. Block 9 will be all next week, which is probably at least as much time as I'll need since Block 9 is about 1/3 of the total Franket. No definite plan for the border at this point.

I have just realized that I will need to do a blanket/mat for Finn to sleep on after the Olympics. He is currently curled up on one of the towels we put down by the back door to dry him off and catch the snow he shakes off when he comes inside. Clearly, he feels that the doormat by the back door isn't worth sleeping on when there's a big towel laying there.

that IS a big blanket.
At first glance, I thought the tennis ball was an olive. (and I thought that was odd.)

What a great blanket! Isn't Finn a lucky dog to be getting one also. (BTW, dragged is the past tense of drag, so no doping issues to worry about!)
