Work in progress, with photos
On Monday night I cast on for the ten stitch blanket, which I am going to use as a bathmatt. I'm using handspun (that's two projects in a row!) and 6mm needles, which rather feel like stakes. Because the needles are so big, and this yarn is so thick, this project is growing fast. For the fun of it, I took a photo every day, of this blanket and its super fast growth.
On Monday I cast on. I used 14 ridges rather than 9, in order to make a rectangular blanket, rather than a square one.
On Tuesday I turned the first corners
On Wednesday I pulled out most of what I had done, because the corner wasn't right, and the joins were messing and the whole thing was wonky.
The I went to pub and did it again, but right, although I actually think I am doing the joins differently from the pattern, but I like the way it looks, so I'm fine with that.
On Thursday I took the day off knitting (yes, my arms are still hurting a little bit. I can live with it. Don't judge me).
On Friday I had the day off, and watched some television, went to the osteo, and hosted my parents for dinner, and did a fair amount of knitting
On Saturday I ran errands and watched TV, and took a lot of public transport. This project has not got to the point were each day it doesn't double in size, so the photos aren't really very dramatic.
Now it's Sunday afternoon and I haven't knit at all today yet. I'd better go remedy that immediately.
