I have nothing to report on the granny square blanket - I got bored. How do you make those HUGE blankets?
I'm still looking for a pattern for that hideous knitting challenge wool.
I found some plain wrist warmers the other day that I loved: http://www.knittedbliss.com/
The pattern actually comes from here: http://a-friend-to-knit-with.blogspot.com/2008/09/toasttoasty.html
I think the wool needs a plain pattern or it will just mess with my head. What do you think?
I need some size 7 DPNs for the pattern and I dont have any so havent got started yet.
I'm not entirely sure what all this means either yet so maybe this WIP wont actually become a WIP for a while. Sorry. :(
"Next round, needle 1: Knit 4, slip next 4 stitches to a piece of waste yarn, CO 4 stitches using the backward loop method, knit to end. Continue knitting in the round until entire piece measures 11 inches. Bind off.
Thumb: Place 4 stitches from waste yarn on a double point. Pick up and knit 4 stitches around thumb opening using another double point. Using a third double point, pick up and knit 4 more stitches around thumb opening. 12 stitches.
Join. Knit in round for 1.5 inches. Bind off."
I'll message Leslie at http://a-friend-to-knit-with.blogspot.com/2008/09/toasttoasty.html and see if she can transtate it into beginners terms for me. What is binding off????
Hope all your WIPs are going better than mine :(
