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.

Where do all these yawning gaps come from? Aha – this time I have the answer – I have been busy updating Scattered Thoughts! After a couple of very long posts, time and energy were lacking for coming here to write and as little else had happened other than a shopping delivery or two, it seemed unimportant.Also spending far too much time at Facebook, which I am trying to give up but it keeps onContinue readingHere, there, everywhere – and nowhere at all

The Cold Light of Day

Nell’s excessive drinking and urination have ramped up considerably. Hence I was outside at a little past 2 am this morning, by which time the car was already covered in a sparkling frost. On the 6 am toilet run, the world was looking fairly well white all over (as viewed through the window from my bed, that is). When we first came house-hunting around here there was snow on the ground (apparently a once inContinue readingThe Cold Light of Day

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarch√© to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM
