The Frenzy Continues

I switched from the double points to my 16" circulars and was able to go about 3 rounds before I ran out of room.

Note to self: 4-8" doublepoints laid end to end=32". A 16" circ laid, well, straight=16".

Dumb, dumb, DUMB!!

So I switched again, this time to a 29" circular. That allowed me to make some additional progress.

As I planned, I knit along throwing in bits of patterning until I ran out of ball 1. Since I want this blankie to be only a bit random, I broke into another ball of Panic Pink to complete the last 20 or so stitches of the round.

Then I switched to blue Berserk.

For those who would like to recreate what I am doing, the patterning so far looks like (approximation):

Rounds 1-6: knit

Round 7: k 1, *yo, k 2 together**

Round 8 and all even numbered rounds: continue the increases and k all stitches

Round 9: k

Round 11: do the yo thing

Rownds 13 and 15: purl

Round 17 and 21: knit

Round 19 and 23: yarn over thing


The Reunion Mitones are done (except for blocking.

And the Premium Booklet for the fair arrived in yesterday's mail.

Thank you for the directions for the blankie. I love it. It looks like if I learn to knit-in the end tails there will not be any other finishing work to do, just blocking. I love that. It has such a nice air of independence about it, you can do whatever you want, and it promises to look pretty and warm and cozy. Thank you so much for your generosity.
They're done! And officially mittens now. Awesome, Ann.
Beautifully done, Ann! Combined with the matching knitted cap, it's quite a piece of work!
