Straighten Up and Knit Right

Last night as I headed to Purlygirls I realized--with a shocked gasp--that I had left my knitting at home. But, as you should know by now, I always have emergency knitting in the trunk so I wasn't too upset. When I opened the trunk to pull out my sock yarn blanket I realized that my hexagon blanket was in there too! Excellent.

I discussed on the last podcast that I wanted to knit the half-hexagons on one edge so I would have a straight line and some kind of guidepost about where to go next. I've been knitting pretty randomly on this thing and can't ever seem to get my bearings. Of course the first half-hexagon I knit went in the wrong place. Ugh. I ripped it out. By the time I went to bed last night I had two done and the start of a straight line. It needs some steam because it doesn't look too straight yet.

I'm all fired up to get this done now!
