Modular knitting continues

I seem to be in learning mode these days. This is my default when things get tough. Elderly care is taking up a lot of my emotional bandwidth so I need something to concentrate on in small doses. The Jigsaw Blanket by Stephen West was great for this.

But I wasn’t done with modular knitting. I took all the techniques I learned from the blanket to the Conglomeration Caper Cushion by Woolly Thoughts (free download).

This pattern has lots of information about working all the shapes but does not give you row by row instructions for joining. It was fun to work on trying to transfer techniques to see if I had actually learned anything.

Not bad but I’m thinking of doing one more cushion cover to consolidate my knowledge. I have lots of partial balls left over from both projects.

So onward.

Cheers, Deb

  1. WOW – that Stephen West blanket is wonderful! But he never does anything ordinary, does he?? I wasn’t too excited about it in the beginning but you sure have changed my mind!! Can’t wait to see the next project finished.

    1. I always learn something when I try one of his patterns. And you’re right, they are are not ordinary. All the better, I think
