Two squares for Jason's blanket is on the way to the west coast.
I finished my first square for Jason, and during blocking, I had the not so great idea of using a hot steam iron on a wet piece.
So here's my second square for the Jason blanket. I might have enough left for a third square although I'm not sure. This might be it for me. Now I get to mail them off!!!
Last month I was over knitting with my glamorous friend Thor who invited me to watch Annie M. on Knitty Gritty showing her technique for dreadlocks.
Am having trouble with using two colours - stranding the green colour on this reindeer behind the white when it's not being used, keeps making the stitching uneven.
This is one of the most beautiful squares, I gues all the squares have their own beauty. Here you see the difference between garter stitch and 1 x 1 ribbing.
A belated thanks to my spoilee. When I first got the scarf, I thought, it's beautiful; but, thick. When will I ever use that?
I was so excited to discover this site - it's good to know we're not alone!
