I haven’t posted anything knitting related in a while so here’s what’s on and off my needles in 2009?
- I made a pair of slippers for Granny, peach and white. But I failed to take pictures. I’m sure Granny will show if you ask nicely.
- I am working on my R2D2 plushy bot, slowly. Much like the R2D2 beanie, I am knitting in the round, intarsia style. I am sort of making the pattern up as I go. I purchased a collector R2D2 and opened the package. I’ll wait for the collective gasp to settle. I then measured in centimeters and graphed according to how large the final product should be. I’m probably about 5-10% into the project. I picked up some nice plastic bobbins, in Traverse City a few months ago, to make this project easier than the beanie. There’s a nice Ben Franklin with reasonable prices.
- I found a cute chick and egg pattern on a knitting site that I frequent. It’s an Alan Dart pattern, available on his site for free as of today. I don’t understand the difference between decrease by working two together and k2tog, so I’ve decided to make it up as I go. I’m probably about 5% of the way through this one.
- I have ten or so squares from a swap I participated in to collect blocks to make a blanket. I don’t know if I’ll participate in another swap, it was a lot of work to hostess this and it wore me out.
I have no photos to offer, check back next week and I might have a pic or two.
