I never posted a photo of the square I finished last week. Here it is, still unblocked, but at least it's done:
Then last night, I finished this one:
That's definitely my favorite so far. It was a really easy pattern to do, once it got going, because all of the side charts were pretty much memorizable.
I do wish the decreases in the lace charts had been written with left & write directions, as the K2togs seem to look odd in some places, and I think SSKs would have made more sense there. But all in all the pattern was quite forgiving of my mistakes, so I'm happy. :-)
In an effort to catch up to my 25 row a day goal (it's not hard, but if you're doing two other projects that have deadlines at the same time...), I cast on for yet another square, the one with the YO diamonds in the center. Not much done yet:
This is also a fairly simple pattern, except for one thing. It's written to be somewhat reversible, so it's worked in garter stitch, so I keep confusing myself as to if I'm on a WS or RS row. Once I get that figured out, it should go quickly.
And I know I keep saying it, but I really am going to start blocking this week. I have the sneaking suspicion that at least one square will need a lot of help--I don't think I knitted my DNA cable square long enough--it looks awfully stunted next to the others--has anyone else done this one yet? I'm seriously considering re-knitting it if I have time, because it has the most noticeable mistakes in it, and it was my first square.
