Log Lace Shawl Progress: 03/11 Romping through it

A brief project report:

  • Pattern: Colors Squared
  • Source: WollSchnegge Ravelry Store
  • Ravelry Project: Log Lace
  • Yarn: Noro – Kureyon Sock (cols 40 and 188)
  • Needles: bamboo 3.5mm straights, dpns
  • Squares made: 10
  • Stitches on needle: n/a
  • Total stitches worked: ?
  • % complete: about half?
  • Estimated completion: not really fussed

Suddenly I find that I have ten squares completed. It is time to sew them together. That makes me nervous. Knitting needles I can handle but as soon as I pick up a needle with an eye in it? Instant terror!

I need to read the pattern again. I think that I discovered yesterday that the triangles are not knitted stand-alone as the squares were. I think that I am now supposed to sew the squares together and pick up stitches in order to fill in the triangle spaces along the top edge.

Should I block the squares first? It doesn’t say. I think it might be better if I did.

Really. I have no idea.

Oh, and I don’t possess a 3.5mm circular needle to finish this project off with either. Will have to send away for the appropriate Symfonie tips.

I think that we might be returning to the Pi blanket for a week or two now and put this one on ice while I consider the best way to progress.

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
