Shetland Square

I finished Dax’s blanket! It turned out bigger than I was expecting.

Yarn: Blue Sky Alpacas Organic Cotton

Needles: US 10 1/2 circs

The only bad thing about this project is that the rounds kept getting longer and longer since it was worked from the center out.  That really can put a damper on a project (see also my long-abandoned Icarus Shawl (ravelry link)).  But it was worth it for my little guy.

Still plugging away on the knitscene crochet project and hoping I can work on Chris’s hat this week too.  I’m anxiously awaiting some Scout’s Swag sock yarn in the Kill Bill colorway (my favorite movie(s) ever!) that I ordered for my birthday, so if I can finish the hat, I can get started on socks as soon it arrives. I’m thinking it’ll make a great pair of  Monkeys (Ravelry link).  I’ve knit a few pairs of socks for various members of my fam, but never just for me.

    Did you put two shetland triangles together? Very curious minds are interested– especially when they have knit three of these, but not for themselves because they look silly on a young-looking person in said triangular format…. ;)

    Yup, that’s it. I have to go back and look at the pattern, but basically, you eliminate all but 1 border stitch (on each side) and go. I am trying to put together a small tutorial since I’ve gotten some quesitons about it on Rav too.
