Share a Square

I think I can safely say I know why our broadband provider came bottom of the list in a recent customer satisfaction survey!  In fact after being unable to connect yesterday I was on the brink of ringing the national news this morning when I realised I’d missed the opportunity to vote in Kim’s Knitters’ Hunk yesterday but relented when I was in fact able to vote – I can only think it had something to do with the time difference.

So my creative space this Thursday is red, cream and blue.

The 900g of yarn I bought last Thursday for Share a Square has been transformed into 66 6″ squares – uhh ohh ‘666’ – look like however I managed to avoid the devil by keeping my hands un-idle!

Somehow it was equal numbers except for the blue – my tails must have been longer on those – which resulted in a dual coloured square…

Speaking of ends, I remember last year having to undo a big tangle after the squares had been washed so this year what did I do?  I threw them in the washing machine anyway on the handwash cycle and look what I got…

Mind you, I got this after untangling them!  Has this put me off popping the next batch in the machine – of course not.  However this time I’m going to plait them to see if that makes a smaller or bigger tangle.

Yesterday I also knit clues 1 and 2 from this…

Roo mentioned it on her blog last week and I thought I’d give it a whirl. I’m unable to provide a photo of my progress but am able to show the yarns I’ve chosen to use…
Hopefully the purples won’t be too similar.

  1. 66 squares? Must have taken you hours!!

  2. You are a doll! Those are going to be great. I’m curious about the shawl you are making. Will look forward to seeing it when it is finished!

  3. 66 squares?! Blimey! That’s a blanket already!
    I think your shawl will be nicer than mine. I am having a sludge green crisis and may have to start again. The family is unanimous: “That thing is vile!” SIGH.

  4. Good thing I’m not in any kind of race with you; I’d have already lost… it takes me hours to do one square… months to knit something. But I enjoy reading about your successes (and other things) and get a lot of enjoyment out of seeing what you create!

  5. Vote when you can. I’ll make sure it gets counted. ;]
