Progressive as a square:

MMario's picture

Cynthia @ Baxterknits gave me permission to adapt her 'Progressive' shawl as a square -- and here is the results. (see attached photos) - the colour is more true in the one you can't really see the patterning, and it is much more square then it appears in the photo where you CAN see the pattern - between the angle, the camera, my eyesight -- quality photos 'R' not us.

Red Heart 'Soft Baby' in a pale yellow - so pale as to be almost cream. Done on a size 10.5 (US) needle. It took about 12 ounces -- the soft baby comes in 7 0z skeins, so less then two skeins.

addendum - started the circular version over the weekend - it's currently 224 stitches around - 58 rows.

Oh Mario, I'm thrilled to

Oh Mario, I'm thrilled to see that! I think I like it even better than my original version. Can hardly wait for the circular one.

it turned out a lot lacier

it turned out a lot lacier then I expected - which is nice as it is now shipping out as a wedding gift rather then a baby blanket.

Indeed! Incredible work. How can someone not living in the 21st Century work so fast?!

as usual, insanely beautiful work. I don't understand how you can get so many intricate and great looking pieces created so quickly - you're a prodigy!

Big needles and no life. A

Big needles and no life. A talented designer doesn't hurt either *grin*

note: only two types of decreases used on this - k2tog and (slip2, k1, psso)

I feel the same way when I see women knitting projects in four or five days that take me the same number of weeks. and I know these women WORK - so it's not they have tons more time then I. PLUS they use those insane little needles.
