It’s bank holiday Monday next week and I have Saturday off. That can mean only one thing; masses and masses of knitting.
The timing is perfect. I am leaving for Canada in just over a week and I need the Avengers blanket to be done by then. I’ve done:
- Black Widow
- Iron Man
which means I need to do
- Captain America
- Thor, and
Hawkeye is our favourite character, yet he’s the hardest. I’m doing a purple mask on a white background (Matt Fraction’s comics-inspired) but every time I do it I mess it up. It’s a simple design but somehow it keeps going wrong. I’ve tried it three times already. I’m determined to get it done.
On top of the main character squares I have a bunch of plain squares to do. I’m reeling them off two or so a day right now. I have discovered that for the first twenty minutes or so on the exercise bike at home I can knit. After that the sweat gets in the way a bit, but yes, this is how little time I have left to finish the blanket; I’ll be knitting in my sleep soon.
No pictures yet on the offchance that Nari happens by here.
I can’t wait to finish this blanket. I can’t wait to be able to do something else! I am going to start a boatneck sweater in the green Cascade 220 I bought a year ago. It’s still in Canada so I will be casting on while I’m out there. Can’t wait to get some natural fibres on my needles – yarn snob or not, I’ve had enough of acrylic!
This might actually be the biggest project I’ve ever done. It had better turn out okay.
Pictures in a couple of weeks!
