There have been lots of changes this week! I finished 2 projects over the weekend, started a new GAL square, and made progress on my Minecraft socks. I don’t have pictures of the socks, but this time it’s because I forgot to take pics and not because there’s been no visible progress. I’ll try to remember a picture for next week’s update.
First, here are blocking pictures of the Holiday Trinity Shawl:
I really enjoyed this knit, even though the final few rows were really long and my needle wasn’t really long enough to hold all the stitches as comfortably as I prefer. It turned out fine in the end. I was able to cast off the shawl and get it blocked over the long weekend. I haven’t yet unpinned it, but I’m sure it’s ready for its glamour shots.
I also finished the Star Wars GAL square that I’ve had on the needles on for ages. No fault of the square, it just initially got set aside for gift knitting, and then it was at the bottom of the knitting basket so it didn’t get worked on.
(The white yarn is sparkly. I love it.)
But over the weekend I cleaned up my knitting basket and had lots of time to knit while Mr. Wyrm and I watched the final days of Awesome Games Done Quick, so I was able to finish the Star Wars square and start my next one.
The next GAL square is the Periodic Table from the 2014 blanket. The 2014 squares are the same size as the 2016 squares, though, so I can include them in my blanket.
I’m doing this one as XDK (extreme double knitting) so that it’s readable on both sides. The front will be “KNIT” and the back will be “TINK”. Seemed appropriate, and silly, and since I was doing the XDK anyway why not spice it up a little bit more? I’m having fun with this knit, and looking forward to having the square far enough along that you can see what it’s going to say.
I’ve also been knitting on the Minecraft Socks, as I mentioned, and while the Boyfriend Sweater is still on the needles, I haven’t worked on it this week. I’m almost done with the right front, though, so hopefully I’ll get that wrapped up soon so I can start on the left front.
