Wow, it's been a LONG time since I've updated! Unfortunately that's because I hadn't knit anything until now. It was the dreaded second sock syndrome, I fear. (Also I couldn't find the notecard with my row count, but that's mostly resolved.) I was depressed because the fuzzy red scarf I have been working on for my aunt has come to a screeching halt. I tried to take it back a row and now cannot find the loops of the yarn. I can't pull it out anymore, either, because the fuzziness has tangled everything. I probably ought to buy three new rolls and just throw away what I have now, but it seems like such a waste when the scarf is almost completely done. At least it's a fast knit.
Today I update with a pic of a square I sent for the February exchange of Stitch-My-Square
, which is a really cute exchange of 8"x8" squares. Presumably I could do a whole bunch of these and make a blanket.
My square is made of worsted weight Red Heart "Blueberry Pie" yarn (I got tons of this for Christmas. Great name!) and is a really simple pattern. For a couple weeks I thought about colorwork, but I could never actually make it work, so I'll be saving that for later.
Here's the square I received:
Isn't it pretty?? The yarn is really nice. And the edges of the square don't curl up.
