This week, I chat with Kurt Fausset and share chart 17 of Gina's Afghan. Links to the keys for the afghan charts are on the Crafty Living Patterns page.
Gina's Afghan, Chart 17
We are nearing the end of the afghan, friends. I'm considering making our next project a sweater knit-a-long, but it might end up kind of strange. If I write for you just what I do in a week, one week might be "**work ten rows on sleeve, then tear out**, repeat until the end of the zombie movie." The next week could be "zoom along until you realize that your gauge has changed." So, in other words, I'm game for it, but I'm also kind of afraid.
Alternatively, I could do a series of afghan squares, or other items that could be part of a charity knitting plan. I've just become aware that an organization on the Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota is accepting items for pregnant women and babies. It's a place that is close to my heart.
Another idea is that I could go back to my roots and do something geeky like base a stitch pattern or a pattern on a number. Say, the date that podcast is publishing. For instance, for this week, I could have done a panel of cables and ribs, 19 stitches across. I could throw in the month and the year for fun, sometimes, too.
Let me know what you think. Email us at email@example.com. Or, leave a note on our facebook page or the Math4Knitters Ravelry group.
My chat this week is with Kurt Fausset. I had a great time and I hope you're not too bored by our detour about architecture, brick houses and my grandfather. I seem to be mentioning my gramps more and more often, lately. Hi, Papa!
