week fifty-eight

First of all, I did continue the fourth piece on the knitting board but missed a loop then frogged the whole thing. Fingering weight should be used along with another yarn but the lacy result wasn’t bad.

Over the weekend, I started and finished a circular rug using a pound bag of mill ends. It was ten balls of unknown yardage, though they were all small amounts. I had to block it because it didn’t hang smoothly and curled at the edges, so it’s outside.

I don’t have a large enough and flat surface to pin it to, although it did sit in the bathtub but in-between bath time and showers, it isn’t the best place to let it dry.

Also, it took me a whole extra day beforehand trying to figure out how to avoid making ruffles.

The blue knitting project is coming along. I forgot I had to cut the yarn at many points because it got so tangled.

Finally felted the hat yesterday. There is a picture of me wearing it on my Instagram feed. The corners stand up so it looks like ears. This made me want to experiment more with making felted objects.

A pom-pom about to become a pom-pom. The yarn is Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable in Parrot. I fail at using cardboard to make pom-poms and this nifty device from Clover makes it so much easier.

Few minutes later. An extra-large pom-pom.
