I’m almost done with my 11th Hour Blanket
Just another few rows of knitting, and then the knitted icord (in a heathery orange) and I can stick a fork in this one. Woot!
And it’s a good thing, because (drum roll please…) THING 2 HAS REQUESTED A HANDKNIT SWEATER FOR CHRISTMAS!!!!
This is in all caps not because I’m stressed about the timeframe. This is in all caps because I’m psyched that one of Things actually REQUESTED A HANDKNIT!!! That. never. happens.
So I will scuttle my plans for ‘runner’ and instead work on Katie! Lucky for me, Thing 2 is petite, and the pattern calls for worsted weight. Also Thing 2 is not keen on fair isle, and instead requested stripes. In earth colors,she said like brown and less brown. Yes, I know. Thing 2 can be grim. When I suggested gray with orange, she perked up a bit.
Now it’s time for shopping, because I don’t have any gray or orange (or even brown and less brown) worsted weight yarn in my stash. Too bad, so sad.
