Notes

6-30-15: I’ve got to finish all my squares up this year to finish this before Ellie goes off to college, so I’ve cast on three new squares this week. I’m so excited to have one in Plucky’s old cashmere no fingering yarn in the Tilney color way! First variegated Plucky I’ve laid my hands on.

4-15-2014: Cast on a square in Elliebelly Juliet Sock in the Provence Colorway for the Adventurous April KAL -- sort of a spur of the moment thing.

3-5-14: finished up a square to clear the needles and cast on a new square in Malabrigo Sock in Piedras as part of Malabrigo March.

using up all my leftover sock yarn.

2-23-14: Just finished my 11th square. I need to kick this one into gear. I’d like to have 42, but I don’t see myself getting there. I think I’m going to try and aim for 30, but even that will be a stretch!

4-27-15: finished 2 more squares on our israel trip. Somehow, I never seem to prioritize working on this-knowing it doesn’t have to be finished until 9/17 means something else always gets my attention first. I’m again going to try and get back to working on squares regularly so I can finish them up and have lots of time to put it together.

7-30-15: Just cast on for the last square. I’ve managed to power through them, knowing that putting this together is going to be a PROJECT.

My wonderful LYS owner did the crochet edging, because I don’t crochet. The edgeing is Elliebelly Juliet Sock in the Grey Lady colorway.
