Since starting to knit the loops of my Miss Winkle 'backwards' instead of turning them (as mentioned in the last update post), there is a definite change in the tension (gauge), although I'm hoping that it will magically disappear with blocking.
There has been much discussion on the Ravelry group about the best way to block the loops, and although the pattern suggests using dowelling, I'm going to try my 25mm circular needle cable which is flexible and should fit through the loops well enough. But not for a while yet as I am about to start my 25th loop and expect to get at least ten to twelve more before binding off.
If you like the look of this pattern, you can still join in as the Knitalong runs through to the end of the month and many people have finished one or two of these already - it won't take long if, unlike me, you actually have time to knit it! Details are here. Our prize draw takes place on the 10th April, you just have to be knitting along and participating in the group discussion to be automatically entered!
My apologies to all who have been waiting to link up your blog posts. Little Miss has a sickness bug (I'm writing this from her bed, where she is finally sleeping) and this prevented an update last night. I'm loving all your blogs and I can't be the only one, so please add your links below:
