Just under the wire ...

These were finished a few days ago but just getting around to pictures and posting now. Sorry to say that they are not blocked, but given that the rest of my life is in boxes and I'm running around like a crazy person, they're a good reflection of my state of mind!

Both patterns went *very* fast and were great fun to knit. Looking forward to next month's kit!

September & October Blocks

I just realized that I never posted my September blocks. They were my favorite color until I got October's yarn. Now, October's color is my favorite. I had many problems knitting the double swag pattern. Once I had knit 10 inches before I realized I was pulling the wif too tight & so I frogged it. I am happy with the square now though.

Just on another note, I recently bought some Moo cards. If you aren't familar with Moo cards, they are smaller than business cards & have pictures on them. My email, blog & Ravelry name is printed with a picture of my knitting. Out of the 7 pictures I have, 5 of them are under cover squares. The textures of the squares made for interesting pictures. Thanks again for creating this club.

Will there be other clubs as well?

2 Drawings

September and October each need to have a drawing (uh, bribe). There will be 2 drawings for the following:

1 skein of Kona Bay Cotton Yarn (super soft)
2 sets of Swallow Needles (Love these needles)

Post your September and/or October squares and get into the drawing.

What would everyone think about sending November and December squares together, around November 10? That would give everyone plenty of time to finish for a holiday gift. Tell me what you think?

October Blocks

Finished! I loved the Broken Rib block, but didn't like the Scalloped Swag as well. I added an additional stitch on each side and had to knit it very loosely in order for it to come out the right size. I do like it better now that it is finished!

October Blocks

What a great color we got this month! My yarn arrived on Tuesday, and by Wednesday I had completed the Double Broken Rib block. I then started the Scalloped Swag, but it is knitting up very narrow. Even with gentle pressing with my hands, it is only 10" wide. I can't imagine that it will block to 12". Is anyone else having this problem?

Good News!

Good News! OWool is here and will be on it's way to you tomorrow (Thursday). You can expect a brand new color, not even on the website yet. Will tell you more tomorrow and let you know what my bribe is for this month (and make up for last month's no bribe)
