WIP - May

My current work in progress (WIP) is an Afghan, I had previously crochet 63 squares, but I did not want to sew them together, So I decide to knit them together. How you ask, I cast on about 30 stitches. I used the seam as you go method and joined two squares together (one on each side) when that was done I cast off and removed, I then cast on 30 stitches and jointed the two I just completed to a third, so now I had a strip of 3 crocheted squares joined with knitted squares. I continued until I had the length I liked. I then made another strip using the same method. When that strip was the same length and I cast off, I then cast on 30 stitches again this time instead of joining squares I joined the strips together. I did this make a strip join to previous strip, until I had the size afghan I wanted.

Now I cast on 1 stitches knitted 1 row, add 1 stitch, knit 1 row, add 1 stitch, knit 1 row, do this until you have 7 stitches, end up on the side opposite of where you are hanging the afghan (always add on the side that you are going to add the afghan to ) ( I decided not to reform the stitches in the corner. and I am doing a seam as you go for the board attaching the afghan to the board. I knit 1 row reform the stitches for k1 p1 (the seed stitch) Hand a stitch (from the afghan) knit a row, reform p1 k1 (you want to make sure the stitches you purled you want to knit them.) I will post another photo when it is done. (here it is in progress) I did a series of short rowing for the corner.

Welcome to my Bond Blog, not to be confused with blond blog. In this corner we will travel the road of understanding of the Ultimate Sweater Machine created by Bond. This is included the Incredible Sweater Machine, The Bond Classic. The Bond Elite (Minus the ribber, bond no longer makes the ribber unfortunately) This can also include the clone E-Z Knitter put out a few years ago, but removed from the market because of copy-write laws to the bond. I will include excellent links to wonderful patterns.
