Welp, this was another slightly weird month. I had a little bit more brain power to knit, but all I really wanted to work on was my blanket. I did spend some time on Corstorphine (finishing up the first sleeve), and Vertices United (moving on to section 3). But mostly I just wanted to knit squares, squares, and more squares. You can see that I actually started the third section – there was a period of time where I needed a travel project but was too lazy to get my ball winder out to start my next pair of socks, so I just started the next section since I can throw little scraps in a bag and just go. Speaking of those socks, I’m really loving the combo of pattern and yarn because it makes my little Agatha Christie loving heart happy. I’ve got a sock it to me Monday post drafted where I’ll talk about those!
It’s also slightly frustrating that even though I knit 49 squares (!!) this month, that really only got me back to where I was after only knitting 6 in February, so now I’m back on track of needing to knit a square every day but two each month. I am going to really love this blanket, but I’m also sort of exhausted by it at this point. I also probably need to finish a few more socks and shawls and things so I actually have some more yarn I’ve used for the blanket! Oh well, we’ll get there.
In April, I am hoping to start my Rheinbeck sweater and maybe finish off Vertices? Corstorphine is definitely going to take a bit of a break, I have no idea why I thought I could finish that before it gets warm! While I have AC so don’t mind working on sweaters in the summer, this is definitely a winter sweater so it’s going into hibernation for a bit!
What will you be working on this month?
