So I finished this month’s cross stitch 🙂 I kinda cheated, since it was already half finsished, but I also didn’t have the full month to work on it (I came back to York on the 4th), so I’m calling it quits 🙂
I also finished the first sock, which I put a rush on because I needed the needles to…gauge swatch!
The gauge swatch is also done, washed and dried. I get gauge of 28 stitches to 4 inches on 2.5mm needles. More on this on Saturday, when I’m going to do a post about modifying the pattern I’m using.
And finally, I’ve done a few more hexagons on my scrappy blanket. One more stripe and I’m going to call it done, although I’ll still add hexagons from time to time. I will however, come up with another blanket. And I think I change dmy mind about designing my own pattern, it just seems very complicated right now, when I need to be concentrating on other things. Maybe later. Does anyone have any good free scrappy blanket patterns?
This has to be my favourite hexagon. The yarn is regia hand-spun effect, and the colour runs are longer than this, I just started at the best spot ever! I’m not putting another hexagon in with this yarn, it’s that perfect!!!
