Yop '20 - #5

(Kommentare: 3)

It's happened again - I lost count of the weeks. *sigh* Well, to be honest, I didn't have much to show anyway, just working along on various WIPs. Speaking of which, here's one photo I'd like to share with you:

This is my Sockyarn Habitation Throw. It's huge. I need four circulars to be able to spread the stitches out so I can lay it flat on the bed. And still, it's not wide enough to cover the entire bed, so I need about 120 more increase rows to make it big enough. That's 120 more stitches, on top of the 400+ I already have on the needles right now. It's a bit of an uphill climb, and though it's still a fun project, I must admit that I'm really looking forward to the downhill run aka the decreasing part. 

So that's what I have mostly been working on these past weeks. I also spent a few hours with Fox Paws but found out I wasn't really in the mood for that pattern. It takes more concentration than I had to spare. So instead, I decided to try mosaic crochet, and startet a Terrazzo Afghan. I'm using the yarn pack I bought for the Spicier Life CAL that I ended up not making because due to the many different stitches, the blanket's edges got all wonky, and I just can't live with a wonky blanket. Since I lost my photo mojo for the better part of August, I haven't even taken a single photo of the squares yet. 

Oh, and I did finish that pair of socks I had started so long ago that I can't even remember when, so that's one F.O. and an awful lot of stitches on a WIP, and that's quite something even without photographic evidence, I think. 

And that's all for today. Here are my updated lists:

I’ve been trying mosaic crochet too. I’ve seen one of Tinna’s patterns is a terrazzo style and I wonder if it’s thaf one you are doing. I love the look of mosaic and it’s fun to do. Your habitation throw is looking great.

Thank you, Liz. Yes, that is exactly the Terrazzo I'm doing. I'm not sure how far I'll get with the yarn so I thought doing squares would be easier. If I end up having enough yarn left for a border, fine. If not, well, at least I'll have a blanket.

120 increase rows??? I thought I was ambitious knitting dresses, you humble me! Well done you, quite an achievement!

Antwort von Ella

Thank you. Actually, it's just a case of stupidly deciding on a large blanket, and then being too stubborn to back down. LOL. I must admit that no matter how much I enjoy knitting it, I'll be glad when it's done.
