“Captain Fantastic, raised and regimented, hardly a hero…
Measuring Brother, Can You Spare A Dime , – there’s my friend again; I’m beginning to like him – because I have some purple wool – recently untangled by I – I could use.
41.5 (x2) = Total L = 83 in x 33 avg W
If I’m correct, I need 99 L based on my W…pattern check:
Remember that you need the 1:3 ratio to get the correct sizing for folding. Since our width is 13″ (ish) we need the length to be 39″ (ish).
…I was right!
Ding! Dang! So I need sixteen more inches…and I just realized the purple wool I had in mind to finish this matches the fiber content of Like A Prayer Shawl…LIGHTBULB!…that would make a nice felted knit bag also with the existing color blocking…OMG! Especially, if it measures up for the same bag!
Bing! Bang! Make it so!
But then I have no other wool on hand to continue with Brother, Can You Spare A Dime. 😦
Having made When Doves Cry, a knit bias shawl, I am loving the construction and wanted to make another of my own design.
On my first attempt I was starting with a k1, yo, but that did not make joining new colors any easier, so I switched sides and began with K the whole row and ending with a k2tog at the end (beginning side). This made new color add a little easier to manage, not so loose.
I have completed my first garter stitch section and have begun a yo, k2tog lace pattern, which I have also just completed. The next section with be a continuous garter section of the leftovers of the colors used so far. After that, back to black, though in what stitch has yet to be determined.
Ugh! I already noticed a mistake in the lace, but I am not tinking or frogging back.
Oh my God! I am so glad to be done with crochet seed stitch. Now I need to figure out how I am doing to seam these strips together. My first thought is double-sided, slip-stitching for ease of matching stitch counts when the opposing stitch patters will differ. Whatever the choice will be the next post will be to mark the completion of this project.
