I feel like a bad Disney fan. I haven’t seen “Finding Dory” yet. Maybe this weekend, since it’s a holiday weekend and I’ll have an extra day of me-time.
In the meantime, I have been knitting! Here are the progress pictures for my current GAL blanket squares.
Portal square! This is the back side of my 2016 Portal Square. Yes, I have already knit two Portal-themed squares for this blanket. Those were both from the 2014 blanket. This one was designed for the 2016 blanket, and I love the Portal games so much that I had to KNIT THEM ALL.
And this is the front side of my Portal square! Because I couldn’t decide whether I wanted the design in orange of blue, so I used both. My 3-color DK knitting is a bit off on the gauge (I carried the 3rd color too tightly) but it should block out just fine.
This is the square currently on the needles, the Dragon Age square. (Another game I love!) I’m really enjoying this theme. The squares are fun to knit, too, though I’m glad I went with fingering weight yarn. I’m enjoying that a lot more than I would a thicker yarn. Plus, this way I get to use sock / mitt yarn leftovers! (That’s the case with this Dragon Age square. The purple-ish color is left over from when I knit a friend of mine a pair of fingerless mitts.)
Have a great day!
