Seems my knitting mojo has returned with a lot of gusto. But then buying has too!
I forgot to show the squares I started for my Great-Nephew’s blanket #4, when you are knit worthy, you are knit worthy! 2 done so far, and about 7 more to go. Unless I decide to make it bigger, going for a 3×3 block layout. I plan to make letter blocks to spell out his name, but not sure how to arrange them. Unless I just use his initials, and then it’s easy to do.
This was my view during the England/Croatia game, sadly England lost. Sniff, sniff.
The blanket seaming is progressing well. Almost halfway done, and then it will need some edging rounds. Not looking forward to that. It will be soooo big! I might just do crochet so I don’t have to have too many needles picking up sts.
At first I was picking up sts along several edges with both ends of the skein, and then 3 needle bind off. I ended up picking up down the side of one square and then along the edge of the other back to the beginning and then 3 needle bind off. Like this:
And what’s all that pink and coral in that shot up there? The new stuff. 5 skeins of Universal Uptown Worsted. It’s so soft!! And for a 100% Acrylic yarn, I am amazed it isn’t scratchy or rigid at all. The pink is the start of a baby sweater, 6-12 month size. I am cobbling numbers, cabling, and shape from 3 different patterns. Fingers crossed it all works out! Baby is due in a few weeks. Eek! I had one sweater done, and Diva went to see her Beau’s cousin’s new baby, and of course she had no gift, so I sent it on with her. Sans buttons. LOL! She had to sew them on, but only got one on before losing the needle in the car. Pattern is Tiered Baby Coat.
