One is the pinwheel blanket.Ã‚Â I ripped it and placed the yarn back into stash.Ã‚Â I like the pattern, but the more I thought about finishing the blanket the more I ask myself why I was making it.Ã‚Â I don’t have a baby, not planning on one in the near, or far, future.Ã‚Â I don’t know anyone right now that is having a baby that I would want to give it to.Ã‚Â The more I thought about it the more I thought the yarn needed to be something else.Ã‚Â So, it will be.
The second is the first of the Holiday Knitting Projects.
pattern: Generic “You’re Putting Me On Socks” w/ easy toe from Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Schurch
yarn: Opal 6-ply
needles:Ã‚Â Clover Bamboo US3 & 4
cast on:Ã‚Â Sept 1stÃ‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â cast off:Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Sept 8th
notes: IÃ‚Â started the Easy Toe, from Sensational Knitted Socks, using US2 Chiagoo Bamboo DPNs to give it a nice firm fabric.Ã‚Â I bound off using this bind-off, which I read about at brooklyntweed.Ã‚Â The second sock went off with out a hitch.Ã‚Â The first one had FOUR knots in it with chunks taken out of the pattern.Ã‚Â I had to pull out large section of yarn to make the pattern repeat correctly. Not fun at all.Ã‚Â The socks did end up matching, except on the heels and I am not sure what happened there since they match on the foot and on the leg.Ã‚Â
