Week 7 – 21 February 2016 / Sunday
11cm x 18.5 – 19 cm – (s 6mm plastic)
double yarn – knit & purl – every other line
Knitted today while out having tea with family. Had another very unflattering photograph taken of me on request while I was there. Used the same flecked cotton yarn as last week and enjoyed using it. It stands out much better against the dark purple I used yesterday.
I decided that on Sundays I will cast off earlier in the day so that I can wrap up the week, take necessary photographs and update blog entries through that week and be ready for the new Time Piece. This will be especially important after next week when I go back to work full time and everything becomes more precious and needs to be more efficient.
What this means though is that if I want to knit on Sunday evenings…which I expect I will… it gives me an opportunity to work on another off-shoot piece I want to make called “A Month of Sundays”, consisting of 31 individual swatches of Sunday magenta yarns. I started this tonight with my first piece. This is also a little window to work on my ‘Life Time Knitting’ piece once the ‘Month of Sundays’ piece is complete.
I am also curious if it is possible to knit a triangle? I imagine it is…if so that opens up several other ideas – specifically I want to make a circle of 12 x triangles that begin to work out the colour code for 2017 Knitting Time project.
So much to knit…so much Knitting Time….I’m loving it all and thanking E for the inspiration and her crusade…it has worked its magic on me….it’s like “A Month of Sundays”!!!!
Note: E gave me a small swatch of magenta yarn already knitted. That will be considered the ‘germ’ piece for the ‘Month of Sundays’ piece.
