Well, I officially started it. The Mini Skein 10 Stitch Blanket it underway. The video below has more information about it.

Mini Skein 10 Stitch

I started out with US 3 / 3.25 mm double pointed needles (DPNs). I will be adjusting and changing needle sizes if necessary.

The first bit of yarn I used was all the samples from Ann, TwinMommyCreations, had given me over the years. Those were not easy to knit up if I’m honest. I don’t normally use needles that small.

I do not own a swift. My plan to go over to my friend Ann’s studio and use her’s hasn’t happened yet. But I was getting impatient and wanted to get Ann’s Rainbow Mini Skeins balled or caked up. My husband made me this:

It’s a piece a scrap PT wood with some concrete anchor screws in it. I’m able to loop a mini skein around it so I can then cake it up or ball it up myself. It’s not perfect, but it works.

Lion Brand Bon Bons

(This part I actually forgot to mention in the video. Oops!)

I had mentioned in last week’s podcast, that I would be exchanging a duplicate package of the Lion Brand Bon Bons for a different color set. I had had two packages of the Nature color. When I went to Joann’s on Tuesday to exchange them, I wasn’t allowed a flat exchange. I was able to return the second package, but because the 50% of coupon I had used on Sunday was now expired, I wasn’t getting the new package at half price.

Needless to say, I was not happy about this and ended up leaving without a new package of Bon Bons. Oh well. I’ll just have to wait for the next time I have some 50% off coupons.

    Your arm from the carpel tunnel must be felling better. Points to your husband for helping you out. Might not look fancy but it works. Glad you figured out what was causing so much pain. Darn those double corners.
