- Herald's tabard for moi
- Back has begun. Not much to shout about, though, I've only worked one decrease so far:
The good news, though, is that I recreated the instructions for the sleeves (and realised that yesterday I wrote about figuring out sleeve decreases when I should have said increases...whoops).
Still behind on The Schedule, but at least now I'm forging ahead.
- Fafner blanket for baby Whyte
- This weekend the plan got put into action. I took note of how many rows were in the body of the blanket (146). I put all the stitches for the body on the row above where I was going to cut onto a needle. I then cut the intended row, leaving me with two pieces of blanket. I ripped back the bottom half to below the turquoise cable motif and put the stitches on a needle. I attached the new-found turquoise yarn to the edging and attempted to finish it.
I HAD ENOUGH TURQUOISE.
Barely. This is how much was left over:
Then I grafted the cast-on and cast-off edges of the edging together. I counted how many rows were on the top section of the blanket (61) and calculated that I therefore needed to have 84 rows done on the bottom section of the blanket before I could start grafting the two pieces of body back together (61 + 84 + 1 grafting row = 146). I knit on the bottom section until I had 84 rows. I grafted the top and bottom together.
Unbelievable. It's all coming together. Literally - I've started to sew the body to the edging:
Not bad, eh?
