First off, congratulations to Helene who is the winner of a copy of Knit New York. Helene, I have emailed you.
I did finally complete work on my Bulky Cardi and here it is, hastily laid out on the floor:
This was knit from 14 skeins of Shalimar Missy Bulky. I’ll not be writing up the pattern because I did not take good notes while knitting it. So it is a one-off. I haven’t tried it on yet. I finished it on Monday and set it aside. I’ve had a very busy week.
But I’ve started work on Lucy’s modified Cornerstone Blanket. Here is half the blanket:
I am knitting this from Noro Kureyon on a U.S. size 7 needle. The center of each square is knit from colorway #321 and the border from colorway #211. The squares are knit according to Kay Gardiner’s Cornerstone Blanket pattern, but I am making all the squares identical instead of varying the size of the center blocks.
The center is constructed from four 36-stitch mitered squares, and the border is worked until there are 10 garter ridges. Each square is about 15″ across. I will work 4 squares and then do an i-cord edging in the center colorway all around the outside.
I’m about halfway through the third square now.
And Lucy is waiting.
