More Squares

Monday, July 20th, 2009

My Zauberball mitered-square stole is looking lovely. zauberballwrapc12.jpgI knit a lot on it while we were at the music festival, and in the car on the way home. It did get a lot of positive attention at the festival. It seems like I am on the right track.

I have figured out that it takes me about 22-25 minutes to knit a square starting with 31 stitches on the starting edges. It should have about 150 squares when I am done, I figure. Since I have 30 squares, I’m 20% done.

(I will decline doing the math for how many hours of knitting that might be! After all, most of my knitting happens while I am waiting in line, not just sitting still.)

No matter, if one can imagine the finished item, usually one can get through all the stitches to actually finish. It is pleasant knitting. This yarn is soft, yet spun well enough to decrease easily, and the color changes keep me enthralled.

I can definitely picture myself wrapped up in this one. It is like a sunset you can snuggle.
