spire 2014 - my progress so far ~ posted by guest blogger Andrea :)
This picture shows my current status. This is as flat as I can get it laid out. I'm now knitting on 2 circular needles to eliminate some of the scrunching. I like to see a little better what I'm doing. I've reached the middle of Chart B, repeat 3. I am really in the rhythm of this pattern. I count all stitches in each quadrant before I move on and it has gotten a little difficult (100+ stitches in each quadrant). I've now added, for my convenience, 2 additional markers - one after the 1st 16-stitch repeat and another after the 4th. This way I can break down my count to more workable and visible numbers. Knock on wood, I've had no mistakes to unknit or fix because of these additional markers. It's all to eliminate headaches and frustrations.
I am in love with my yarn and this pattern. However, I'm ready to move on to the next chart. It won't be much longer. I love this project.
Let's hear a little from some of the others out there. I'm curious where everybody is and how it's going, particularly Kelli. A little bird whispered to me and I want some verification. Happy knitting everyone!
