Yarn Along & F.O. 8/7/2013

Wednesday Yarn Along!

 

This week, I started on a new project a Patchwork sample Throw  and I am still reading High Fidelity.  I like the look so far,

but the pieces are not coming out square using the number or rows and stitches the pattern calls for.  Each piece should be a 9″ square, but instead, mine are coming out 9″x12″.  I don’t think changing the needle can fi that if the number of stitches give the width it should be….oh well.

I am also changing up what this pattern looks like.  Here is what the pattern calls for:

For my throw, I am adding a border and making it 6 squares across and 7 squares long (instead of the 5×6 it calls for) and I am adding one additional stitch pattern and more colors.  I did not want the colors & patterns going down in diagonals for my throw, I was hoping for something that was a little more random, so I plotted out these squares:

I also finished my Bulky Blankie last week and brought it as a gift for my cousin’s cabin.  We had a family get together this weekend (more on that later).  I love how this blanket came out!  This was another free Lion Brand pattern: Autumn Lace. I also love that it took less than 2 weeks to finish!

    Beautiful blanket!

    I have yet to tackle cables so that throw pattern might be a way to get some practice in.

      Two of the square patterns have different types of cables. They are great for practicing. 🙂
