MadMay 2013. Here we go!

18 May 2013: 3/4 into the second repeat of Chart A and loving it. The diagonal pattern is not easy for me to remember so that’s the only part where I need to look at the pattern every row. It looks tiny for now but I am sure once blocked it will be as wide as I hope it would be.

20 May 2013: Done with Chart B. Started Chart C. Going well so far. I love how the pattern changes so often to keep it interesting.

23 May 2013: Slow going the last few days as I have been busy with other stuff, but knitting as much as I can, when I can. On first repeat of Chart C and just joined the 3rd skein.

29 May 2013: Done! I bound off using 8mm needles and it’s plenty stretchy. Blocking might wait until after the kids leave on Saturday. I’m just glad I met the Mad May deadline.
