Since it’s been so long I have like… too much to say haha! Since I last blogged, I’ve finished the Great Western Way shawl (in June) and my Rheinbeck sweater, Princess Fiona. FO posts on those coming soon. Since finishing my sweater a few days ago, I’m trying to figure out what I want my next big project to be. I worked a little on my Grandma shawl, but it’s a but tedious with all that entrelac. I think I’m going to start another sweater, though I also have plans to knit some socks for my cousin.
Sadly, the pride socks are still on the needles. I don’t really know what I was thinking, I started the heels WAAAY too early, and because I was using size 0 needles, they’re even smaller than that. So I feel like I just need to tear them out and do them right but I haven’t had the energy for that.
In blanket land, I made a bunch of progress (9 total squares!) the last few days. I’ve decided that I am going to make this in four quarters and seam together, so that the lines on the squares will meet in an X in the middle. I am doing this primarily because I don’t like how the non cast on edges look compared to the cast on edges. This way, all the edges will be cast on edges. I think it will also fix some of the funkiness due to the fact that my gauge has loosened a bit since starting this in 2016. The one problem with this plan is that it commits me to the 480 total squares, but that’s what I wanted in the first place, and it does look like a good size, since I’m currently at 9×12, and each quarter will be 10×12.
I’m looking forward to catching up with you all soon!
