I started a couple of things on Saturday. This is the Boy’s Valentine/birthday present. Since I am probably not going to make it in time, I already spoiled the surprise. He said he wants shorter socks. Next time. Less for me to knit! Haha.
I started on another WWFY project. Mindless garter stitch for awhile. It goes pretty fast, too. It’s the softest yarn I’ve felt…
Still chugging along on my squares. I got sick, so I skipped a day, but hopefully I’ll catch up.
I need a selfie stick! Haha… In all honesty, I wanted the Boy to help me take pictures, but between blocking and mailing it, there wasn’t enough time to ask him. So I did it while walking to the post office.
The ribbing was killer toward the end, but I persevered and it is gorgeous. I’m contemplating another version for my mom, but definitely shorter and maybe wider. If I drape it over my neck, the ends almost reach the floor. I’m 5’2″, but still. Before blocking, it only reached my knees, and I thought THAT was long!
The fabric is so wonderfully drapey and squishy. It was hard to get a good picture, but I did my best. I’m sad that it is going away, but I am happy that I’m done with it. Fingers crossed that it gets there!
Totals are in for January! This is for completed balls of yarn/completed projects.
Still working away on these squares. Some days I have to play catch up, but I’ve been pretty consistent.
Birthday socks for Rebecca! I actually started in the beginning of January but took a break with the shawl project.
Totals for the month so far, but I’ll probably add one more ball and some 400 yds this month.
I need to block some squares!
Visual progress. I’m getting there!
I’m still working away on the shawl. I hope I can finish it by next week.
I finished one side of the Velvet Stole. Stinkey decided to join me to take a picture of the shawl. =] He’s the Boy’s cat.
I’m still trudging away with the blanket squares. Less than 100 left for my original 300 squares though.
So they didn’t end up knee-high. That just isn’t very practical around California. But they are still very lovely to wear.
I made a few mods. They are mirror images of each other, a feat complicated by the size of my feet.
I also changed the cable pattern in the back to 2 braids. They are so nice and warm. ..
I’ve been working on my WWFY piece. It was slow going at first because I couldn’t get gauge, just like Goldilocks last time. I don’t know what it is about swap pieces that don’t like me, but it finally decided to behave and I’m making some good progress. I have about 8 inches left before I get some interesting cabling going on.
I promise I’ve been working on my blanket, not as much as I’d hoped, but still slowly making progress. 102 squares to go.
