NEW FOR 2009…
It’s a new year… so now what is on the needles? Well I’m so glad you asked!!PATTERN: Bear Claw Blanket by Veronik Avery, from Interweave Knits, Spring 2005 (also available as PDF for $6.95 from the website.) YARN: Cascade Sierra – 80% Pima Cotton and 20% Wool – Worsted/10 ply (9wpi) 191 yards per 100 gram skein – gauge is 18 – 20 = 4″ on size 7 needles. COLORS USED: Green 048 – Pink 16 – White 01 – and Pale Yellow 07 NEEDLES: US 4, US 5 and US 6 – clover bamboo circulars
So why this pattern? Our local fairgrounds is having an auction in March to raise money for numerous things. One of those things is that you can designate where you want the funds to go for the item you donate… this item will have the proceeds go toward the awards for Knitting/Crochet Crafts. I work for the county so I know how important it is that they get as many volunteers as possible for this event. We are a small county and I want to support them in a way I love… Knitting!
I don’t have a picture of my progress from today, but I can show you where I started out at this morning.
The green doesn’t seem to photograph very well. It’s actually a bit brighter.
