Since I am unable to sleep while traveling I geared up and was ready for my new project!
The Ten Stitch Corner Blanket by Frankie Brown.
In 2014 I made a classic Ten Stitch Blanket (from Frankie Brown as well).
I loved working 10 stitch rounds! But to be honest, long knitting needles were hard to handle with constant turning and turning... so I decided to make myself a set of short knitting needles. I didn't want to ruin my only set of 4mm DPNs by gluing beads to one end permanently, so I listened to my Mom's advice and.. tadaaaah:
|It says "Prestige"!|
I had troubles with joining rounds and decided to go for a different join. I found it in one of original Ten Stitch projects: this one. It goes like this: slip, pick up, knit picked up and slipped st together. I also slipped 1st stitch knitwise after turning.It produces a bit bumpy, but nice enough edge:
After a week of traveling back and forth I have one complete corner, and started another:
It turned out to be very autumnal! :)
Speaking of autumn, sadly season for garden-grown tomatoes has come to an end.
But we can enjoy our own quince! Nothing tastes quite like a big cup of tea with quince marmalade.
Now I'm off to enjoy my weekend, and my one extra hour of sleep tonight (we're having daylight saving time).
Have a nice afternoon!Gosia.
