A Few Knitting Things

But first this is Myles wanting dinner, now, please. Now! Please! Feed ME!

I knit two squares yesterday for the blanket. I also did some math. Each square is about 3.25 inches. I’d like a blanket that would cover the top of my bed. It’s a full size. So I figured a 20 squares per row would be good. So 20 by 20 would cover the bed nicely. Yikes! That’s 400 squares.

I still haven’t found the size 7 29 inch needle. I know I have one since I found the package. Tomorrow I’ll take a deeper look. It’s around here, somewhere.

Finally the Loopy Groupy forum on Ravelry is doing a Ramp up to Camp KAL/CAL. It starts May 1 and runs until May 31. I’ve tentatively picked a pattern and since stash yarn (purchased from The Loopy Ewe of course) is allowed that is my plan. There are further requirements but I’ll talk about that once I’ve gathered everything.

  2. If you do two squares a day, you’ll finish easily by Christmas.

    Could the needle be holding the stitches of a project started and set aside? That is how I discovered a forgotten needle a few weeks ago.

  3. Oh Myles, you melt my heart! That is a lot of squares, but just take them a couple a day, and you’ll be there before you know it 🙂 Can’t wait to see what you pick for your ramp up to camp project!

    400 squares! Eek! That is how I felt when I started and never completed my afghan. 😅 Good luck, I know you will do well.

    400 squares? Holy cow, woman! How long do the squares take? I’m a geek so I am about to do the maths.

  6. If you knit just one square a day that means you will be done by winter 2022. I’ve had a lot of projects on the needles for longer than that. You’ve got this.

    Myles can come and stay with us! I’d love to pet his shaggy head. Excited to see what your next WIP will be.

  9. Looks to me like “I’m starving, I’m getting weak, I’m starving!) But you know him better than I do, so I’m sure he isn’t.
