Resolution Recap #4

Wow, another month passed in a blur. It’s finally warming up though, the birds are chirping and the grass is slowly turning to green. And with the beginnings of spring the colors of the scarf are changing.

AprilS

I started using purple and lime green, which I switched for pink because there wasn’t any pink in cascade 220 superwash.

I didn’t even work on the blanket I don’t think, I’m not going to post a picture of it but I promise I’ll make time for it this month. I hope. I have to make a graduation present for my best friend so that’ll be first but hopefully it won’t take long.

I’ve been planning some off the blogging week posts and I’m getting super excited. I can’t wait for it to start.

Resolution Recap #1

Wait! Where did January go? Actually, if one wasn’t looking at a calendar one would probably not know it was February. It’s still cold and snowy. It seems like everywhere I go, work or school, people are complaining about the weather. But I digress. It’s been an odd month weather-wise. It’s been below zero and above forty degrees at times.

Enter the Weather scarf.

Each color represents a ten degree range (in Fahrenheit). Every day I knit two rounds for one stripe in Cascade 220 Superwash. I can see a little bias forming from the uninterrupted stockinette. Any tips on how combat this?

The Blanket hasn’t fared as well as the scarf has. There was about a ten day stretch where I had simply too much schoolwork to be able to knit. There is noticeable progress though. I thought that because it has been such along time since I posted a picture of the blanket I’d repost the last one I uploaded.

This was last spring I think.

This was Friday.

The one from this spring is actually wrong side up. Woopsie.

Action!

There certainly seems to be a lot going on lately.

What with casting on for a new scarf.

I’m planning to knit seven one-inch sections a day and make it four feet long minus an inch. That’s 48 inches minus 1, so 47 sections total. If I knit 7 per day (like I plan to) I should be able to finish this part in a week (from yesterday). Isn’t that great? Now let’s see if I can actually do that.

Once I get up the skeining and Kool-Aid how-tos I can publish Kumpel (Finally!). I’ve been trying to get pictures of E-String in the wild for almost a month now but it just keeps falling through. Taylor and I are having another go this Friday. Wish us luck. I’m also planning, this weekend, to sneak over to the LYS and get the skein of Sausalito I need to finish Libra II (I didn’t quite make it).
