My current work in progress:

1. Segel, designed by Lea Viktoria, knit from Miss Babs Yummy 2-Ply Toes in the "Draco" gradient set on a 3.5 mm (U.S. size 4) needle.
2. Myriad stealth projects.

Checking In On The Pink Blob

I did get a bit of knitting done on my pink blob over the weekend.

I’ve still got a fair amount to go on this but I’m not sure how much — I’ll know when I get there.

Before I left for Minneapolis, I took my chart off the magnetic board and instead marked the rows with carefully trimmed slips of post-it notes.

I do own some of those “pattern tamers” but I don’t like them for use on a single sheet of paper. I can’t easily slide the thing up as I complete a row — I need to pul it apart and reposition it.

Anyway, when Karen saw me with my makeshift post-it note strips on my pattern charts, she gave me a roll of highlighter tape.

Oh highlighter tape! Where have you been all my life?

By the way, I am pleased to announce that the pink blob now has a name. I’m calling the design Sandvik. Sandvik is the name of a town in the Faroe Islands and translates to mean “sandy bay.” As good a name as any, eh?

By the Way . . .

Did you notice that all WendyKnits patterns are on sale over at The Loopy Ewe? Just sayin’ . . .
