A Knitting Challenge

The theme for our Sheeper Than Therapy knitting guild in 2017 is Challenge. Each month we are working to build a new for many of us, so that by the end of the year we will be stronger knitters.

I’ve decided to take on a knitting challenge for myself now: two-color brioche knitting with lot’s of shapes:

I’ve got all the supplies: the book, the knitted chart blown up on my copier, and hand-dyed yarn from my fall trip to France:

It turns out that the charts consist of almost completely new-to-me symbols for the brioche stitches! So that is going to be interesting.

My thought is to do this more simple chart in some yarn to get the hang of the stitches, and then move onto the big project.

FOs:

I finished a couple of more hats for the Operation Gratitude project that the guild is working on (yet to be washed). We’ve already got more than 20 hats done. We hope to have anywhere from 200-500 hats completed by the end of the year.

I also finished a bunch more Knitted Knockers, ready to take to the yarn shop:

Finally , a photo of the Tilt Shift Wrap (Ravelry project page):

 

Many thanks to Ann B, who took it for me at our guild meeting on Saturday.
