Well I worked on the QAYG blocks and got my backing made but nothing worth taking a photo of ….I’m up to 72 QAYG blocks and am working my way toward 96 which will be enough for two quilts.
A few people have written asking how to join the blocks and while I haven’t done it myself, I do have links to Jan Mac and Keryn’s blogs at the bottom of the page with the block instructions that show you how they assemble them. So check out those links if you’re curious.
I think I mentioned that my goal was to be able to knit two socks at a time, toe up, on two circular needles and I’m still aiming for that but after practicing on the toe a few times I decided to do the easy part first….and I also decided I’d try to do a single sock before attempting two at a time.
And I just LOVE these needles except I like the longer one so I’m going to have to get another set of them. Nancy recommended them and I can’t believe how much nicer they are than the Clover Takumi ones I had here and they’re prettier too!
By the way, they’re sitting on one of the books I bought but I’m actually using the instructions from the other one.
