WIP Week - Day 2


Well, trust me when I say that the squares got sewn on last night (complete with another one found lurking in the bottom of the bag). However, I'm not going to show you them - the blanket will be finished before too long and I'm going to wait to show it to you in all its finished glory. But just so as you believe me that I did anything last night , here's the square that I cast on . That too is now waiting to be added into the blanket as a whole. But first it needs the ironing board. And I'm not getting that out again for a while! Today's WIP is this stash busting blanket which is destined to become a Christmas present. Hopefully for this year, but maybe next!


It's nice and easy but these needles are awful - so slippy it's proving a pain to make. So maybe I just ought to change needles? I'm really enjoying this whole 'knitting something different every day', no chance to get bored.


Hmm, wonder which project to pick up tomorrow. Sock? Other sock? Shawl? Hat? Blanket? Oh decisions decisions!

Change needles! Disagreeble needles are not worth persevering with.

Totally voting for a change of needle. Really liking what you've done thus far though :)

What do you mean? That blanket knitting doesn't look easy! But it does look very ripple-y and pretty! Locket xxx
