Knit Along

My yarn finally arrived and I’ve started the first pattern for the Martin Storey Knit-along I’m doing! Every two weeks a new pattern is released, and you make six squares of each pattern. I’m behind because my yarn took so long to come–the second pattern was released almost a week ago and I’m still on the third square of the first pattern. Better knit fast!

But! I’m having so much fun with it. And I’ve only done two and a half squares and you can see real progress from the first square to the third. It’s neater, and it FEELS so much more natural. Once I finish these six, I start the second pattern which has two colors. I’m nervous but excited–I watched a few youtube videos and think I understand how to weave the colors in, and I can’t wait to see how it turns out!

And just so you don’t think I’ve abandoned cross stitching for knitting, here’s an update on the elephants I’m doing for my mom. (I say elephants, but there’s only one here. There will be two, I promise!) Honestly, if I wasn’t doing the knit along the elephants would definitely be done by now, but I don’t have a deadline and am having a blast taking my time. I love this pattern!
