I may have colour fatigue from having Babette semi-permanently laid out in a corner of my living room, but now there are just 5 4-round squares and 4 2-round squares to go in Section 10, before starting the border marathon. I hope to do the 2-round squares this afternoon, along with an hour or so catching up on ends. On Tuesday I’m planning a yarn shop trip, to pick up supplies for the border. The yarn is holding up well, touch wood there should be enough left for the remaining 9 squares without having to have the same two colours in every square.
There’s not been so much time spent on the Million Stripes loop this week, but it has been a welcome relief from the stop/start Babette. My stripe allocation and yarnage will vary a bit to that in the pattern,as I’m running at 5g/stripe compared to the 3g/stripe from the featherweight Colourmart used in the pattern. Those alpacas must have heavy coats. It is such a delight to knit, and I love the yarn.
How’s your week been? I have to say that January goes a lot faster with things on the needles.
