Knitting Pattern for Corinna Checker Blanket

My pattern for Corinna Checker Blanket is in August issue of I Like Knitting Magazine.

Corinna Checker Blanket

In my yesterday post I was musing about deadline versus leisure knitting and this blanket is a perfect example of how the deadline knitting can be stressful.


WIP 
The day the yarn arrived from Cascade Yarns I have managed to burn my hand.  It was painful. However I had a contract and a rather short time to knit an entire afghan and I needed to include the fabric liner to hide the floats on the back and to make the blanket look really neat. 

I have calculated that I needed to knit about 5000 sts each day to finish everything on time. Somehow I have managed to do that and I shipped the sample to the magazine on time.  

Here are a pictures of the two layers being pin together and hand sewn.

 While I was still finishing the sewing the dog decided to test out the blanket.
