Although I haven't been blogging much, I've been a busy bee - I signed up to a gym to try it out for this month, so I have been going there pretty much daily. I also have finished my first six squares for the Knit a Squillion action, for which I committed to knit 25 squares this year.
These squares are perfect for using up leftover yarns. The purple and grey squares are the remains of Junghans Opal yarn held double: the grey was previously called the Grey Monster and the purple is leftovers from my Hotpants (now done, watch this space for photos!) I cast on 32 stitches on 6 mm needles and knit every row untill I had a square. Perfect knit night knitting!
The black square is made from Novita Flip Flop, an acrylic yarn partly made out of recycled plastic bottles. It's bulky weight, so I cast on 33 stitches on the same needles, but the square came out a bit too big. Not dramatically, just a centimetre or so, but for the seventh square (cast on last night) I cast on only 31 stitches.
Have you been making any progress? Please share your squares in the comments or on my Facebook page!
PS: I've also updated my 2011 charity list with these squares!
Well done! Your squares are lovely and look very warm.
Thank you! They are indeed
Thank you! They are indeed quite thick, soft and warm, too!
