There is no rhythm (yet) in my blogging in 2015 … Even though I feel like knitting night and day, there is hardly anything to blog about. I try though.
Right now, I have two “major WIPs” to knit and crochet:
I won’t talk about the first, well, hardly talk about the first project. My friend Jane is having a baby and I get to crochet the baby blanket. As Jane loves surprises, I don’t want her to see pictures of the blanket beforehand. (She is reading my blog, she says). So what can I do other than keeping it a secret? All I am going to say is that the blanket-to-be will be very colorful and made of cotton.
The other WIP is a garter stitch wrap in the colors of the rainbow.
Even though I am only increasing one stitch in every second row it’s getting bigger and bigger with each row becoming longer and loooonger. So far, it measures 130x150x200cm (51x59x79″) I guess, I’ll stop once I run out of blue yarn, maybe I do some more in green and yellow. I’ll see.
Same with the edging. I might leave it the way it is (no edging at all) or add an icord edging. Maybe in light grey?
The whole wrap is very soft in 100% merino and very stretchy, with an unusual shape (at least to me). It is not the classic isosceles but an acute triangle. For all non-mathematicians – this is what it will look like:Not sure if it will be “wearable” and how. But as long as we have 10-14°C / 50-60°F in Berlin there should be enough time to figure things out …
