Four Balls, Take Your Base!
Here's the progress as of tonight. Four Balls knitted up and the fifth started.
Blankie's probably pretty close to 22" square at this point. Stripes aren't obviously narrowing in the photo, but each one is about one round smaller than the one before. I'm on the 60" circular now.
Gayle-Who-Has-No-Blog (or there'd be a link here) pointed out that I neglected to recommend using markers at the increase points when I switched from double pointed to circular needles. So, in addition to the beginning of the round marker, a wise knitter will have placed markers at the 4 increase points and will now be increasing on each side of each marker. Placing markers saves a lot of squinting and counting!
(Sorry! It was a late night--my story and I'm stickin' to it!)
We had our Food Drive kick-off press conference this afternoon. It was amazingly well-attended. Our Congressman (thanks, Charlie!) and one of our state Senators (thanks, Pat) and a representative of another (thanks, Lisa, for sending your aide) were there as were lots of postal mucky mucks and the press (which was the point, no?)
Put some green beans out by your mail box in the morning! Peanut butter would be good, too.
