Brief 203: WIP Wednesday...except it's not. Just sayin'.
First of all, mark your calendars! The Third Annual Knitting & Crochet Blog Week is coming up, April 23rd-April 29th, 2012.
I fully plan to participate again this year.......pending no major hospital visits with Little Man (and I think that can be avoided this year). Even last year, while we were in the hospital with Little Man, I managed to fully participate :)
So, now that's out of the way...
Anyway, it's Wednesday and that would normally mean a WIP Wednesday but I really have nothing to show. I started work on another baby blanket and I'm hoping that this one goes significantly faster than Little Man's ever did. I'm a couple inches into it so I'm thinking it'll be faster...but we'll see.
Oh, I should probably share what this blanket is all about, right?
Pattern: Pine Forest Baby Blanket by Ingrid Aartun Bø.
Needles: US #9 32" Addi Turbos
Yarn: Knit Picks Swish Worsted in Dublin (so far; I may add another yarn and make a stripped blanket)
Modifications: I'm using a larger needle than called for in the pattern, I CO an extra three repeats of the Gull Lace pattern (which is a total of 21 stitches), and I'm considering doing three repeats of the Gull Lace pattern (12 rows) followed by the same number of rows in stockinette...just for something different. If I don't like how it looks, I won't do it, though...
Anyway, since I'm still only in the very early stages, there's nothing to really show for this...except for going to look at the color on the yarn link above :)
So, that's all I know about right now. I hope you're all having a lovely Wednesday :)
