Do you know how it is when you get bored?
I have been working on my jumper for a while now and it was all fine till it came to the collar.
I decided to work on circular needles to save me having to sew a seam. It is going to be a lovely collar when it is finished.
But working rib round and round has got a bit much. Not too good for my wrists either.
I have got this far. I am more than half way at least, just another 10cm to go!
So I decided to work on my turning Celtic Coasters into blanket squares
(Do you remember?) and decide to check out my squaring method on an odd cotton square I had.
This led me to realise that it wasn’t just acrylic yarn and haste on my part that led to my squares being a bit squiffey.
So a bit of experimentation and some maths led to an improvement. Second iteration!
And maybe a second round is even better.
Now to the freebies.
Someone I know from my Friday ‘Crafty Coffee’ group is moving and has decided to get rid of some of her knitting and crochet books of which she obviously has a great number.
I picked up these. You may see me working some of the patterns from them in the future.
