Yarn Along: L.I.L.Y

I haven't gotten much accomplished knitting-wise over the last several days. I finished a pair of crocheted longies (which I'm going to felt slightly - will get pictures then) and finished two squares for L.I.L.Y. I'm pretty slow about knitting so I'll probably crochet the majority of the rest before I try to send a batch. I like the knitting, but I don't want it to take forever to be able to send something!



One nice thing I'll say for making these squares is they're great for using up stash! And you can totally play around with the color. A nice change from the usual.

I'm still reading Everyday Saints (featured last week) and just about anything else I can get my hands on. I was out of inspiration last night before bed so I fell asleep reading Fodor's guide to Alaska. I'm taking the kids to the library tomorrow so I'll try to grab some more things.

  1. I finally finished one knitted square for L.I.L.Y. - and of course the measurements came out wrong. *sigh* I've been really brain-fogged lately - lack of sleep must be catching up with me, plus I had a seizure the other night... first one I've had since last January... and it kind of wiped me out. However, I also have the pieces to a certain little bear all knit up - just have to get the hand-sewing done and stuffing and such... ;)

  2. Don't forget, while they request 8 inch squares they'll take squares of any measurement! I had to make four starts before the first square came out 8 inches. *sigh*

    I'm excited to see your other little project! :D
