Projects and Holidays
Well, we’re approaching the holidays… and that always means I’m super busy… baking, cooking, kids projects, school… and knitting…
This year I joined a Ravelry Group, called ‘Year in a Blanket’… for two reasons… one… I’ve always wanted to knit an afghan from the 12-Days of Christmas washcloth squares designed by Katherine Matthews.
**NOTE… ugh… I just went looking for the pattern for the next square… 2-turtle doves… and seems that Katherine Matthews only designed the first.. YIKES… planning??? what’s that??? there is another set of cloth patterns for the 12-days of christmas… and I will try with those.. though.. I’m thinking I’m going to have to make some adjustments to keep the sizing similar.. GAH!
And the second reason, is I have this ‘afghan’ design in my head that is screaming to come out but I haven’t had time to think/work on it… so… I’m taking this opportunity to start.
I have finished my first square… the Partridge,
And hope this week to get onto paper the first square of my ‘Calendar’ afghan… which I’ll share whenever I get that completed…
I’ve been busy designing, mostly in my head, somewhat on paper in a few cases… and am hoping that this round of designs that are coming to mind will be productive 🙂 wish me luck!
