starting a second block
Seems that my blanket block obsession is continuing unabated. I cast on the second block yesterday afternoon and have worked the first 21 rounds; time to switch to a circular needle, I think. The outside stitches are now dangerously close to the needle tips.
This is the second blanket that I've knit where the blocks are knit from the centre out, and I think it's a great construction method. After all, the blocks come out perfectly square no matter what you do.
Shirley, Christine and I are off today to check out another LYS: Knit-O-Matic. It's about 45 minutes from here and by no means our nearest LYS, but it's one of only a handful of yarn stores open on a Sunday. While skimming their website I noticed that this Mission Falls 1824 wool that I'm currently knitting is on sale. Now that could be dangerous!
