A completed project! And it was a success all around. My first foray into the world of dpns became less and less frustrating with each and every round. In fact, I've already cast this project on again and am going to make the medium-sized squishie. And then the large one. Perhaps with a stripe (now I'm just getting bold!). Silas was also a fan.
He ended up with a lot of seafoam green lint between his fingers. How do babies have this magical ability to gather lint between their fingers and toes? I clean those suckers out with a fair amount of regularity and still he gets all sorts of hair and fiber stuck in those little lint traps.
So, yes, more squishie goodness is on the needles. And for reading, we're on to The Joy of Hobby Farming by Michael and Audrey Levatino. It's more of a manual than a pleasure read, so there's a little bit of skimming going on. But, it's helpful. We're hoping to start looking for The Farm in the next couple of years and there is much to think about in that regard. And I'm still working through The Wonder Weeks. After reading the section that's applicable to Silas, I thought I should read about the developments that we have to look forward to before I take this one back to the library.
For more Yarn Along goodness head over to Small Things.
