I don't think I mentioned before, but I am knitting my Mom a top for Mother's Day. There is no way I can finish it by this Sunday, however I have an added advantage. We don't live on the same continent! She picked the pattern and colour, and I told her she can pick it up in July when she and my Dad visit. Phew, that gives me a bit more time. I am slowly working my way up the back of it, after having to tear it out twice already.
I'm finding that this pattern requires a lot of my attention, at least the part where the leaves are. Hence the ripping out time and again. However, I seem to have broken the back of the hard part for right now. Anyway, my point is that I am a T.V. watcher and knitter, because I have issues just sitting still. I can't focus on this pattern and knit so I've turned to an old favourite. I'm knitting more blanket squares for KAS. It occurred to me that since it is heading toward summer here, they are heading into winter there, and the thought of cold children is horrible. Here are some of my latest squares:
|2-stranded acrylic held together. Great stash buster.|
|20% wool blend|
|Unknown donated yarn, I think the grey is wool and the colours acrylic|
|Unknown rather odd donated wool. Soft though.|
For the patterns I like to vary it. I was given this book last Christmas:
Which has some good, easy squares in it. Very easy to do while vegging out in front of the tv. I am also going to do a few more challening squares from my favorite book:
Happy Knitting Everyone!!
