Work In Progress Wednesday Number 20
Unusually for me, this is a fairly sparse work in progress photo. I tend to do most of my knitting at the weekends, and as I was away this weekend, far less activity than usual has occurred. I took boyfriend's sock for in-car knitting and have been so focused on getting it finished since we got back that I haven't really picked anything else up. Good news is that it should be finished really soon - less than an inch left *grins*
I have also been formulating a plan for my blanket, to encourage me to get on with it. I think I've mentioned before that I had stalled, partly due to not knowing what to do next. So I plotted out what it looks like so far:
Much more square than the pattern!
And then I plotted out how to increase the length, while keeping the essence of the pattern intact:
I think this works, and it uses more of the cream yarn which is handy as that's the one I have most of *laughs*
Bookwise I have picked up Ben Elton's Chart Throb in honour of it being X Factor time of year again. I'm not really a fan of the programme, but I love Elton's satirical take on the way it all works.
As ever, join Tami for WIPW and Ginny for the Yarn Along :)
