Week 7 – 18 February 2016 / Thursday
9cm x 19cm – (s 6mm plastic)
double yarn – knit & purl – every other line
The green I chose for today is very close to the yellow I used yesterday. They work well together but do not show the demarcation of each respective day clearly.
I introduced the next scan of February ‘lead’ yarn in this session thsat I had bought in preparation on Tuesday.
Once again I had a late start to my evening knitting session. Tonight it was not until 9:30pm. I knitted for an hour while watching the first half of a film before going to bed. Even though it was twice as long as the night before it still left me unsatisfied and wishing I had had a longer knitting session.
I had thoughts about where I can go with this knitting practice, especially once I begin to build up my own vocabulary and relationship with the different elements involved.
In the morning on my way to the gym I spent time thinking through the details of my “Knitting Life Time” project. How long each year could be in centemetres and how different size needles could be used for different phases. Do I knit the whole thing in a continuous piece or keep them as separate swatches? I am thinking I might do ‘rough draft’ one in a continuous piece and then re-do each one in more detail as an individual panel and then maybe redo it a third time as a continuous piece again.
