Mid-Week Progress Report
It's already Wednesday, and I don't think my list for this week will be completed.
The booga bag is going to be a gift, so it's my top priority right now. I had the right size dpns for the project, but not the right size circular, so I just started doing the sides with the dpns. I'm finding that this is just putting more strain on the bag and my wrists. I'm only a third of the way through and it seems like this bag is taking forever. Those of you that have made this project before, how long of a circular would you recommend?
One of my Critter Knitter blankets is finished. I enlisted the help of my sweater machine and knit up two stockinette squares- one for the front and one for the back. I then crocheted an edging holding them both together. It was a quick way to counteract the curling from the knitting, but the blanket is a little thicker than I'd like. For the next one, I want to try crocheting an edging around just one square. The blanket is 90 stitches by 135 rows, all stockinette, in worsted weight acrylic yarn. Any idea how many rounds of single crochet it'd take to make it lie flat?
I still have 2 inches to go before the heel on Mike's sock. He doesn't mind the slow progress; it's too hot to wear the socks right now.
I'm about a third of the way through Fiona. I'm not sure yet whether I'll keep this bag for myself or let Charlotte have it to carry her stuff around. The main factor will be how much I feel like putting in a lining.
