This… is going to take awhile

I have two giant projects on the needles right now.

I finally decided on the blanket pattern I wanted to make with my archangel malabrigo.  The pathways blanket!

(remember that stuff)

Sadly the blanket needed a contrasting colour.  Happily WEBS was having their anniversary sale.

Blanket, just add time.

Over 4000 yards of yarn to make into little squares…..  How little?  my squares are turning out to be 4.5″ square.  I’d like to finish the blanket by January, but we’ll have to see how it goes.

Here’s the first 4 in a small pattern.

Putting them all together into an overall pattern is going to be fun. 🙂

 

My second big project is a fingering weight cardigan.  The Hitofude!

Working with knitpicks comfy fingering in the whisker colourway.  This is going slowly, but I think it will speed up when I get past the top yoke.

Here’s my progress so far (well I’m a bit further):

Additionally I’m going to have a special set of projects in July (which will put all my current projects in hibernation)

Le sigh… all these big plans!

Trying to finish up the last few things on my needles so I can focus a bit more on these projects.

Katie wants the dolls to stop taking over….

  1. Oh wow, your post is chockful of good stuff. I love the way the squares are going for your blanket. Your “Blanket, just add time” cracked me up.

    I’m a fan of the Hitofude pattern and am excited to watch yours develop, it already looks dreamy.

    And really? The photo of Katie and the dolls? Pure awesome.
