These days I’m all about the mindless knit most of the time (while reading), with more complex stuff thrown into the TV time (where I can actually look at a pattern). Easy-peasy: log cabin-ing!
My handspun log cabin is growing and dude, I love it. I’ve already added another layer+ since I took this photo. And it’s actually using up balls of handspun! I’m doing 10 ridges in each section, but if I run out of a colour I just add a couple ridges the next time I’m on that side to make up for it. I want this one pretty big, and I’m already starting to think that I might have to actually spin yarn for it. I’m already planning another out of pakucho cotton, maybe double stranded on huge needles for even more fast-ness.
In other fastest-ever news, I’m progressing so fast on the handspun top-down I showed yesterday that the next post about it will likely be an FO! I’m done the body and neck edging (just some single crochet), a sleeve, and am working on the other sleeve. Here’s hoping I divided that yarn equally, and the second sleeve will be the same length as the first one. Hooray for using up stash!
