Holiday Knitting Part 1

Well as far as the ‘holiday’ knitting went it didn’t but since coming home I’ve finished the myeloma buddies I had on order at the time and now the baby blanket.

I’d thought little squares no hassle.  Ha!  I’ve done a few of these in the past could generally remember the pattern easily enough.

This is what I managed on ‘holiday’…

And with the addition of another 47 and a border that takes nearly a full 100g ball of yarn it became this…

I recommenced the second square the second week I was home and initially needed a sheet with the row numbers printed on to cross off regularly because I just couldn’t keep track of which row I was on.  To show how much my concentration improved by the end of week three I no longer needed the row sheet or the pattern.

The yarn is Sirdar Snuggly four ply which washes extremely well and lasts for ages making a quite delicate looking but durable shawl.  The individual squares are joined cleverly through yarn overs at the beginning of every row with a long tail left from casting on.  This forms a decorative and easy to follow seam.

I’m ready for my close up Mr DeMille…
