Good afternoon. I wanted to post something happy today as I’ve been dealing with a sinus headache. It has been preparing for rain around here so the muggy weather has been making me (I take Zyrtec just about every day) and the husband sneeze constantly and I also had trouble sleeping last night.
A Cozy Memories Blanket is a project I’ve been wanting to start for ages. Some time ago I cleaned out my closet, going through my yarn and pulling out what I wanted to give away + putting all of my sock remnants into one bin. This enabled me to cast on at Christmas:
From right to left:
- Schachenmayr Regia, Design Line by Arne & Carlos 4-fädig in Summer Night
- Zealand, Cozi in Kale
- Black Trillium Fibre Studio, Pebble Sock in OOAK
- Cascade Yarns, Heritage in Cerulean
- Manos del Uruguay, Alegria in Tannat
- Knit Picks, Stroll in Dove Heather
- Zwerger Garn, Opal Der Kleine Prinz/The Little Prince in 7760
As you can see I kind of went with a pattern of variegated yarn and then a solid yarn that picks up a color from the right. My blanket won’t continue this way though as I have way more variegated yarns than solids. That’s okay.
During winter break I tried to knit up one a day but don’t let these small squares fool ya. While each starts out with 46 stitches, I do knit back and forth and every right side row I decrease by two. I calculated the number of knitted stitches from start to finish and guess what? One square consists of 1,059 stitches!
Before I go I want to wave to new followers and say thank you for finding my little blog worthy of your time. And a thank you to those of you who have been around. I am going to start responding to all comments, with the exception of a few of you with whom I email with, here on blog at WP; this makes it easier for me to get back to you asap.
I’m off to call the husband so the teenager can tell him some good news and to remind him of the feline promise. TTYS. Bye.
