Maybe tomorrow I can show you a completed picture. -Fingers crossed- I’m going on a retreat (yay, Reach retreat!) on Friday so I’m hoping to finish it by tomorrow.
Squares are in the 30s now. Then I start over with 99 again. It’s just easier to count that way.
I finished one side today. 3 more to go.
I have 145 more squares to go for the other blanket. Still chugging along.
To celebrate getting to 249 squares, I took a picture of all the squares together. Some are sewn, some are blocked, and some are not. .. Why 249? Because the total goal is 399, so now I only have 150 to go! I can do this!
Next celebration point is probably in April. ..
Looks like less than January, but the yarn is tied up in Quill.
14 more rows to the edging… so close! But the rows are so long now.
Happy Lunar New Year.
I’ve been busy busy busy. But the Quill blanket has been coming along nicely.
Other projects are still moving along.
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!
