WIP Wednesday ~July 27th, 2011~


Woo! Look at me, I'm part of a meme! I've had one WIP Wednesday before, back before all hell broke loose with the moving and the lack of internet. At the time, I knew lots of blogs reported a Wednesday WIP, but I didn't know how big (or cool!) it is!  You can find other participants of WIP Wednesdays through Tami's blog: Tami's Ami's.  Lots of new blogs (and knits!) for me to stalk.

In WIP news, still working on the emergency baby blanket. (I have ~ 6 weeks, and I'm a sloooow knitter.)  Originally, the plan was just knit in three colors until I decided I was done and then sew them together in a random pattern followed up with an i-cord border. However, I had a little two much fun with my computer and started playing around with the colors and shapes until I found something that I really liked.


THE BATTLEPLAN:



This coloring pattern would need:
24 Chocolate squares
12 Cream squares
13 Green squares

So far, I have 10 Chocolate Squares...

And 7 Cream Squares....

So much garter stitch is making me go insane.






 

In the making of this blog post, I noticed that 3 of my 7 cream squares were two rows shorter than all my other squares. In definition, they were not, well, square!  So late last night, I picked out the bind off and added two rows to each. My squares are now square!

  1. I have that problem as well, as soon as I start planning a blanket it morphs totally out of control. I had a plan for my niece, it involved 8 colours now I have 17 and it's still growing!

  6. I love the battleplan you've drawn up, the colours and shapes are going to look great, and not traditionally baby, which is awesome. :D

    Good luck on the finishing-in-time and not having the garter stitch drive you crazy!

  8. The current baby blanket I am making is all in one piece. It's halfway and too much to take with me. I need to do something like yours, in pieces for easy travel! Love the quilt block look.
