Joining in with Kat and friends to share another update on Sara’s blanket.
When I’m knitting something for someone else, I pay closer attention than usual to what sorts of experiences I “expose” the piece. And for an epic knit like this one, it can tell quite a tale! Here’s a brief glimpse of the best parts since I shared last week’s update.
Sara and Holly have a special bond and much of this blanket’s at-home knitting time has been just like this.
Time with friends.
Time with a very special TV show.
…because it has personal significance for Sara, too!
Not bad for a week, right?! Now I’m curious what tale the next installment will tell.
I’m not quite to the halfway point, but I have knitted through the two balls in last week’s photo. The color change from gradient 2 to gradient 3 is a bit more subtle – hence the locking marker so I can count the repeats.
…and finally, I’m reminded that pausing every so often is good. Look what I found when I took the photo above.
Yep, there’s going to be a bit of unraveling! (but just a bit – it will be tedious, but I can fix that slipped stitch boo-boo by dropping down the stitch marked in orange to the stitch marked in green.)
On the while-I’m-alone listening front, most of this week has been spent with Simon Vance (one of my all-time favorite narrators) reading A Tale of Two Cities. I have about five hours left to listen and this book would satisfy several of my Bingo squares, but I’m not sure I can wait til Saturday to find out how it ends!
Has your knitting seen or heard anything especially good this week?
