#Knitom Challenge


#21

Why not make a couple of outfits for the baby in varying sizes? Try going to bernat.com they have some nice ones that are free.

July 8. Spent the day at a friend’s gender reveal cookout. (She’s having a boy.) This is the friend for whom I knitted the lacy diatom blanket. I got all the double knit stitches picked up around the dish towel while I was there. Got home around 5-ish and proceeded to spend the next 5 hours knitting the border.

July 9. Finished the knitting part of the border. What possessed me to do a concealed edge on this thing?!? The recommendation I have for Kitchener stitch is 4-5 times the length of the fabric to be grafted. I have 19 YARDS of yarn on a tapestry needle! This is going to be a chore. Three stitches in and I’ve already had to untangle twice. I should be done with it sometime before I go to bed.


#23

Ok. Cancel being done before bedtime. I’ve been at it more than 2 hours and I’ve only grafted one foot. At the rate I’m going, I’ll be done Tuesday. Maybe.


#24

Ha. Ha i hear you hsppens to me all the time


#25

I’ve just finished a sweater like that. I was dividing the approximate number of rows left by the days to see how many more were left to slog through. Turns out, I actually like the sweater!
The dish towel will look amazing and be a feat of engineering when you finish, for sure.

July 10. After 6 hours, I am one inch shy of grafting the second side. The good news is that the more stitches I work, the shorter the yarn tail becomes. I’ve also figured how to eliminate massive tangles. So it is progeasing more quickly. But I may not be finished before Thursday. And to think this is only the first piece of a full kitchen set!


#27

My problem would be knitting for only 10 min a day!


#28

What a beautiful hat!


#29

Well…the challenge is to knit AT LEAST 10 minutes every day.


#30

You can do it:slight_smile:


#31

July 11. Spent 10 hours today grafting the double knitting. Almost done with it. Must stop now before the benedryl knocks me out.


#32

At least 10 minutes is no problem. I usually log several hours!


#33

What beautiful colors. I like it.


#34

Who here is still keeping up with this challenge? I know I am.


#35

Me too


#36

I am going to have to try this challenge too. 10 minutes seems easy and simple.


#37

I am, although I have been in and out of hospital this week. I’ve managed 10 minutes most days although there have been 4 days in total this month no knitting was done at all. This flu has gotten to me and my little family and wow it has done it’s damage on us.


#38

Sorry to hear that you have been under the weather. Hope you are feeling better. :wink:


#39

Well i seem to be way ahead of my 10 minutes a day challenge. I have been averaging 4 to 5 hours a day, in some respects that’s a good thing since I am trying to complete 2 shawls ASAP (gifts) and each requires 430 rows in length over with 125 stitches. I’m hoping to have them completed by August 15th. Wish me luck!

I started the challenge this Sunday, and managed 10 minutes each on two different projects. Sometimes, I have been exceeding 10 minutes on knitting (I have been knitting as long as 20 minutes). I have not knitted today yet, because I was working this morning, but hope to get back to it as soon as I can. Wish me luck!
