Makers’ Monday – Moods 2

Jeannie Gray said
” It’s Makers’ Monday. Tell me all about what you’re making.”


Last Monday, February 12, on row 32 –

this Monday, February 19, working on row 50!

Quite a bit of ripping went on
row 43 had 442 double crochets.
I finally got that right . . .
then row 44 just would not count out right.

I ripped and re-crocheted more than once
and finally fudged,
(for non-crocheters that does not mean I ate fudge;
it means I pulled out my stitching and redid the stitches)
and the continuing rows have worked out well.

31 rows to go – but I know I don’t have enough yarn.
Question – just crochet until I run out of yarn,
trying to plan a pleasant end or
go buy more knowing exact dye lot won’t be available.
I’ll have to see how different the colors are.

A friend laughingly asked when I was going to make her a blanket.
I asked, “what colors?”
She said “black and grey” duh?
“Can I add a little teal?’
“Sure whatever leftovers you have”
We parted laughing.

Knowing me, well, you may not know me,
but that request has lodged in my cluttered brain.

So when I ran across this pattern
(don’t you just love blogs, Facebook, Pinterest etc.)
I knew it was her pattern  (link).









“Optical Art is a method of painting concerning the interaction
between illusion and picture plane, between understanding and seeing.”
[John Lancaster. Introducing Op Art, London: BT Batsford Ltd, 1973, p. 28.]

I took a little while on Sunday to see if my fingers
remembered how to work with three double pointed needles.

Sorry I took needles out before picture.

A little rough but I can do it!
Where this falls in the queue, anyone’s guess.

  1. Ooh! Can’t wait to see how your friend’s blanket knits up. I’ve wanted to knit one of those for a while but it looks like it might not be the best thing for TV watching and that’s when I do blanket knitting.
    Hope you can find matching/coordinating yarn for your other project. I ordered yarn from Knit Pick’s once and put a request in the Notes section about the possibility of getting a certain dye lot… And they sent me the right yarn! I was amazed because the original yarn had been bought a looong time before.

    • How fortunate, they still had the yarn! I’ve gotten close with the grey, waiting to see what comes in the mail.
