Now on to some fun stuff. Amanda is starting a mini Mock Croc sock knitalong, and since I've been wanting to start knitting my first pair of socks, I thought I'd join. Wish me luck!
I've also agreed to knit a square for Papa's Quilt.Jamie is asking for knitted green eight inch squares for a quilt for her friend's Papa who is going into hospice care. It just so happened that I had a lonely skein of dark sage green Caron Simply Soft Quick yarn in my stash.I love this yarn. It's surprisingly soft and silky for acrylic, and has a beautiful sheen. I used this same yarn for Tim's Illusion Scarf . I chose the Seed Squares design from the book 200 Knitted Blocks, because, as many of you already know, I love how the seed stitch looks. I started knitting it last night, and because I'm using bulky yarn, I just have four more rows to go before I can block it and send it on its way. I would have finished it last night, but Sproutie woke up early for his 2am feeding and I had to abandon the knitting to tend to the hungry child. What I'm proud of about this project is that I was able to figure out how many stitches and rows I needed to create an 8" square, and then I was able to modify the pattern to fit those requirements. Sounds like a piece of cake to the experts, but I was quite pleased with myself. I know that everyone is busy, but if you feel compelled to contribute, I'm sure that Jamie would appreciate it.
We still have a movie line contest up in the air. I promise I won't choose such an obscure movie in the future, but I know that SOMEBODY has to have seen this movie. Scroll down to my previous posts to get the latest clues. Tim? Trek? Any takers?
Now, I've got a question. Why does it seem to be that in my effort to make a dent in my yarn stash, I'm having to buy more yarn so that I can use the yarn in my stash? What is up with that?
*My love to all*
