Woo! And we’re off!
I’ve been cranking through my first project that I’m trying to finish during the Olympics, and I think I’m making good headway. At this rate, I should be done in the next couple days (maybe earlier… if I actually manage to kick this cold’s butt and stay up past 8:00 for once).
I’m about halfway through my stash of leftover bits of Knit Picks Stroll, which is pretty satisfying. I hate throwing away the little leftover bits of yarn at the end of a project, so this is a pretty perfect project for me. I’m not even waiting for the end of a row before I switch yarn colors, so I’m not wasting even a little bit. I’m holding the yarn double, and using great big needles (US10s), so the fabric is coming out super squishy and cozy. It’s going to be a heck of a comfy blanket when it’s finished. (I kind of wish I had made it adult-sized, I like it so much. Though, that would have taken more yarn than I think even I have in my stash.)And, it’s turning out massive! Or at least bigger than I had planned on. I guess I didn’t do a great job of measuring my gauge swatch when I cast on the other day. It’s a little under a yard wide (but I could easily block it up to that size if I wanted). I had planned on making it rectangular, but now I’m thinking I might just leave it square. If I do that, I’ve only got 8 or 9 inches to go!
Are you making headway on your Ravellenic knitting?
