So what have I been up to on the topic of knitting these last two weeks?
I have been busting my butt knitting square after square for the Barn - Raising Quilt aka. The Friendship Blanket. The pattern is in the book titled, Knitalong by Larissa Brown. Several of the girls have decided that each of us will knit a square with a yarn that says something about ourselves. Such as favorite color, favorite yarn, etc. We will then get together and trade our squares. So you knit one square per person. I love the idea. I have to make 9 - 10 squares. The plan is to trade them this weekend. So I have been burning the midnight oil trying to get them done. I have three more to go. Cross your fingers.
I am using Red Rocks Fiber Works - Snowmass Sock yarn in the colorway PUNK. Why did I choose this yarn to represent KellyGirl? I love punk rock. I love the colors pink, grey and black together. I also at one point had my hair dyed in exactly these colors. So it was pretty much a given.
Here I am working on a square at the Denver Art Museum.
Here I am working on a square on the Light Rail.
Here I am working on another square while sitting in my car waiting for my hair appointment. Now that is determination!
I am crawling towards the finish line.
