Just a quick update on the kal and other goings on...Seahawks preseason pregame show starts in 10 minutes and I aim to watch every minute (GO HAWKS!!)
I'm at the official 'halfway' point for the Streusel knitalong ( ravelry notes here ) ~ 40 stitches prior to my marker. I've used just under a third of my yarn (27.5g / 144yds).
She measures 22.5" long and 8.5" wide without stretching my work at all.
I'm going to keep going with the increases. Why not? I've got the yarn and when such a simple lace edge looks this gorgeous....
...I'd be crazy to stop now! How is everyone else doing? Hoping to see some progress photos and hear how you all are enjoying the pattern!
I'm also on the downslope of my test knit ~ I can't wait til dandiliongrl releases her High Plains pattern! I think it's going to be a huge hit! I learned a new seam (she provides a link to a 'how to' diagram and instructions) ~ I can't remember ever joining a live horizontal edge to a vertical edge.
All that's left is a border and it's finished ~ I already highly recommend this pattern and I can't wait to make it again. I had to stick to the pattern this time since it's a test knit but I have an idea rolling around in my head how I want to change it up just a little the second time around!
I'll make sure to share a link to the pattern when it's available to everyone else ~ until then, my ravelry notes can be found ( here if you're interested ).
And in case you haven't seen me gushing the last few days, Bonnie Sennott released a new pattern called 'Skipperling' ( my project page here ) and I don't think I can wait to cast on until I'm finished with these two works in progress. I'm so obsessed with her pattern and the yarn I'm using which was a gift from my husband for our 20th anniversary last month :
And to top it off, Bonnie is offering $2 off her pattern through August 15th ~
Thanks so much, Bonnie for the generous incentive ~ I've told everyone I know :)
Gotta get ~ there's football to be watched and knitting to be done!
