Happy Friday! We made it! This was my first five day work week since the first week of November, so yeah, it was a bit of an adjustment.
I’m almost hesitant to write this, because I’m pretty sure I don’t want to commit to this, but I’ve knit a square on my sock yarn blanket every day so far in January! My new test knit doesn’t require a lot of stitches per day, so I’ve been able to work on some other things each day, which has been really nice. It occurred to me that since I started the year with 341 squares to go, it’s like vaguely possible to finish this in 2022?? That’s a big commitment, but I think I could at least try to get quadrants 2 and 3 done? Anyway, why am I telling you this? Well, I need more yarn! I’ve still got a good amount of leftovers from projects that I’ve already put in my blanket, but I’m trying not to repeat yarns. Does anyone want to do a swap? If you want to share some 5g fingering weight scraps with me and get some in return, send me a note via email, Ravelry, or Instagram.
One of the other projects I’m working on is Vertices Unite, I’ve been doing a little bit of this one for the KAL hosted by Sarah. Since this is a KAL, I thought I’d share my tracking spreadsheet I just created for the large size. If you’d like to keep track of where you’re headed on the project, you can save a copy of the Google Sheet here. Like I said this is for the large size, but most of it is using formulas, so you could pretty easily change it to the small size by updating some stitch counts and deleting some repeats. There is a stitch count for the border, but it’s totally a guess because that will be… interesting.
I hope you have a great weekend! I’ll be back on Sunday for a YoP update.
Congrats on the blanket progress! I aspire to do that but probably never will. I haven’t done a square in AGES. And I’m glad you’re doing Vertices too–your colors are beautiful!
Yeah it’s such a long project and having committed to 480 squares it’s like the end is in slight but it’s kind of a slog.
Yeah I was really excited to find good stuff in my stash for Vertices!
Re-entry this week has been rough! You’re making great progress on your blanket. While I don’t think I want any more minis in my stash, I would LOVE to send you some 5-g ish amounts of sock yarn – would that work for you? If so, and there are any specific colors you’d like/not like, please let me know!
Thank you so much! I definitely won’t say no to that but didn’t want to just ask for something for nothing haha 😃
I don’t have specific colors I need, no singly ply but other than that I’ll take anything!
Honestly? I am delighted that you can use some of the multitude. I’m bunnyspinner over on Ravelry. Will you PM me your shipping address and I”ll put together a care package to head out next week.
I love the colors you picked for your Vertices Unite! They look very happy. 🙂 Congrats on the blanket progress! Hopefully it continues to go well.
So many gorgeous stitches in this post – yay! And I’m so glad you survived your first full week back at work. Enjoy your weekend – you deserve it!! 🙂
I’ll pop my scraps in the mail to you.
Thank you so much!
I love the colours you are using in your vertices, especially that deep reddy pinky purply one (top right). Its going to look fabulous I’m sure.
I’ve definitely got some scraps I can send you! And yes, the first full week back after the holidays was possibly the longest week of all the weeks ever.
