I’m caught up with part one!
The stitches are moving faster now that I’m used to the pattern. Center decreases, yarn overs, and nupps. I’m working my version with the three-stitch nupps. If I can just figure out the nupps without turning the work, this project will really fly…
(This is the farthest I’ve ever gotten through this skein of seasilk. I hope it’s a good indication that a project will actually be completed from it!)
ETA: Now that I’ve seen others’ progress, I don’t know if I should try the nupps with a crochet hook or frog and start over with beads.
I cast on, and am running a little behind everyone else. I have about two charted rows finished, with each row taking 1.5-2 hours. But it’s getting faster as I get used to the pattern. Guess we’ll change charts just when it gets comfortable! That’s perfect, then, to keep things interesting.
I have since started four scarf-type projects, each only to be frogged before too long.
This month, I will try again. With the “Wendy Knits” Summer Solstice mystery knit-along. I’m not promising anyone anything, but I have downloaded the preliminary information and located my 420 yards of fingering weight. We’ll see what happens!
