I don’t have any finished objects to show you at present because I have been working on several different things.
NOT my second sock.
And this isn’t ‘second sock syndrome’ it is just that other things have a higher priority, after all I have many pairs of socks already.
I have been continuing to work on the border for my Celtic Knot Granny blanket. I have now finished this far.
It is really suitable as something to work on while listening to Formula One on the radio, as it is almost self checking, though I do tend to pause during the especially exciting bits and should have put it down all together during the crazy Monza Grand Prix yesterday but I got there in the end.
I am still working on the last round you can see there.
The border consists of a round of granny trebles (US-dcs) as in pattern, then what I call a foundation round, followed by five ripple rounds, and another foundation round to straighten the edge. then a round to allow me to add more granny rounds.
I have been cutting the yarn at the end of each round with an invisible join so as to give a perfect finish. I am not intending to do that at the end of the current round though. I think I will go straight into a granny round in the cream.
I have not decided yet, but I will probably then try and start the tricky ripple design that I showed you,though in the blanket colours of course. Probably a long slow business to get it looking neat.
I have also been working on a better cube for the thing I made for my daughter.
Here is the first completed cube (only about one inch a side)but I do have the inside for the other seven and a few of the outer panels.
Another thing I am working on is the plans for a new blanket. This represents a few experiments. I don’t know that the colours will be the same as they are yet to be decided. At present I can’t quite get the numbers to work (I expect you knew my plans would involve numbers!) but as my granddaughter hasn’t decided what size she would like I am having to keep things fluid anyway.
