Week 9 – 2 March 2016 / Wednesday

Week 9 – 2 March 2016 / Wednesday
25 cm x 18-17 cm – (s 6mm plastic)
double yarn – knit / purl; every other line

I knitted from 6pm – 8:30pm…a relatively long knitting session. It was so nice to have some time to relax into the knitting and really enjoy it!
I am finding it easy to work with the 2 x yarns together – a creamy, light yellow yarn of thin-ish gage and the March turquoise..very Easter like.
I want to go to Trago in the morning and get an emerald green yarn to work with…or something darker even.

I am finding it easier to tell knit from purl at the start of a row today.

Week 9 – 1 March 2016 / Tuesday
8 cm x 19-18 cm– (s 6mm plastic)
double yarn – knit / purl; every other line

I am behind in uploading last week’s blog…there is always going to be a delay there I fear…
I am very excited about the new month – 1st March today and the start of a new ‘lead’ colour. I am not sure about the choice, as it feels more of a summer colour – especially in the cotton – but I wanted a thin yarn and a blue- moving into green so this is what I have committed to.

IMG_2857I resurrected the last of my ‘peach’ yarn from my Mom’s collection because of how it went with the new lead yarn. I thought using the other thin, bamboo orange but it seemed like just too tropical a colour combination for this time of year.
I want to get all new colours to work with this month. I also want to mark going back to full-time work for next 8 months somehow in the Time Pieces. It is a big transition!
I knitted from approx. 8:30 -9:30pm. I ran out of my peach yarn mid-row. That is the end of the peach…I want to get more yarn that goes well with the march ‘lead’ turquoise.

Week 8 – 28 February 2016 / Sunday
9 cm x 17.5 cm – (s 6mm plastic)
double yarn – knit

I knitted with my magenta, flecked yarn for an hour while Skyping with my Mom. We deliberately Skyped so that we could both knit while we talked. She is working on a top for me out of the wool from ‘Ryya’ the sheep in Seattle.

I cast off the Time Piece in early evening and spent the later part of the evening knitting more with the same magenta yarn – starting my ‘Month of Sundays’ sideline piece. I cast on 24 like the other swatches.
