yeah blocks 3 & 4 done in soft pink - 1 skein killed

09-07-2016

picked up another set of US7 DPNs as mine are on an adventure somewhere. I’ve got 2 sets of blocks done - pink and dusty pink, 1/2 way though the peach.

13-07-2016

yea!!! peach colour is done! on to spruce green

22-07-2016

yea! green all done . was starting to do mocha coloured when I decided I need a bit of a break - off to knit some socks me thinks :)

04/06/2017

finished Block 1 in the light brown!! yeah love shown to this patient blanket :)

11/22/2017

picked it back up again - block 2 was on row 16

11/24/2017

Not sure how I feel about the bind off on Block 3. It uses a stretchy bind off which is totally unnecessary as this block is done in the round and comes out totally square.

I think I might just unbind them and change it to a regular bind off - at least on one so I can see the difference
:

uses less yarn and is more on spot for the 8.75” finished size - will frog all bind offs for this blocks and redo the bind off

11/25/2017

  1. redid all the bind off for all the Block 3s I have done
  2. posted on the Webs Board for the MKAL regarding the missing instruction for LC RC

3. If no reply rec’d, or I can’t figure out a way to make the block acceptable to me, I’ll use Knitterati block 14 to replace it. I’ll have to use smaller needles to bring the finished size down from 10x10 to the 8.75 required by this pattern
4. starting next colour section while waiting for reply to my question. Using Knitpicks Brava Red for the next set

YAY!!! rec’d full instructions from a member of the discussion board - full steam ahead

11/27/2017

All 4 blocks in the brown beige colourway done

Knitpicks red next

12/03/2017

1 skein of knitpicks brava completed blocks 1, 2, 4 and half of block 3. If I need to I can use the yellow skein for a set of I have another similar yellow to finish the color set

Red colour set will be done tmrw.
