Streak of Lightning layout
This particular layout is called Streak of Lightning.
I still have 26 squares to go - I've been working for 5 weeks straight, every chance I get (I do work full time, and have a newish boyfriend, and not as much time to knit as I'd )like. But I reckon that at this rate it's going to take another 13 weeks... (or forever whichever comes first). I am still having fun with it, but I think I'm going to have to add something else to my current projects list. (Icarus shawl from the new IK).
There were some questions on gauge etc... from the last time I posted here that I should probably answer. The squares are approximately 12". My center square is 20 stitches by 20 garter ridges and measures 3.5 inches, so my guage is somewhere around 6.5 stitches per inch. I swear I thought I was using 3.75 mm needles when I started! Darn not checking first - turns out they're 3.oo mm... But it's great fun, and I'm determined that it will get done, just not right away is all.
Anyway I hope everyone that has a holiday this weekend has a great time, has fun, and stays safe!!
Hey, my name is Abi too! I don't meet too many people who spell it that way.
