New Knitting Project

I have a tendency to get a little obsessive about the things I make. As soon as I finish one bead loom bracelet, it’s on to the next one. And the same is true for knitting, now that I finally finished my gargantuan blanket! My new project is a blanket too, but a much smaller one. The color palette is very jewel tone, and I love it. This little throw is destined for our grad-school-iconic Ikea Poang chair. I am trying to make sure I make things that we really need and/or will use, so I am glad to have a place for this new blanket. However, after that, I’m gonna start making blankets for all of you guys, so get your orders in! (I’m kind of serious. I really love making blankets!)

I try to pick up a new skill with each new project, and this time I’m going for using multiple colors and producing this honeycomb pattern. It was a little tricky in the beginning getting used to working with three skeins of yarn on each row, but I feel really comfortable with it now.

It’s always awesome to see a project take shape, especially when you’re working with a new technique. I was so thrilled when these little honeycombs started popping up! Hopefully this blanket won’t take months and months to complete, but if it does, they will be very pleasurable months.
