I finished the Morioka square last night. This one really felt like it took forever, because it's done on size 5 needles. Normally, that wouldn't faze me, but since I'm on a 25 row a day quota, the extra 20 rows in this square threw me a bit off. I do like the way this one worked out. The pattern was fairly easy to get a rhythm going with, and easy to read in the stitches, with a little bit of change up every 10 rows or so to keep the boredom away.
That makes 11 done. I've cast on for Hewitt next. I'm trying to do some of the more challenging ones that I have left first, so that when I really get into crunch time, I can chill out with some simpler patterns. That's the theory at least.
I'm hoping not to get too far behind this weekend. I normally would be at my stitch n' bitch meeting on Saturday, but the TNNA Needle Arts Market is in Columbus this weekend, and I was lucky enough to get a gig helping out at a booth, so I'll be losing those precious hours tomorrow. I think the sneak peak at upcoming yarns and patterns is worth it though! I'm going to get up early and knit at a coffee shop before I walk down to the convention center.
In other news, I cannot believe it took me this long to invest the $6.00 in one of those magnetic boards that help you keep your place on charts. I suffered wtih post it notes far too long. This thing has made keeping track of rows so much simpler!
