What I'm Knitting: November 2014

 I've been working on the Geek-A-Long blanket, which you can find currently dominating Lattes And Llamas. It's a great knit blog, and they even have a helpful video on how to do the double knitting technique used for all their wonderful nerdy motifs. All their designs are high quality, easy to follow charts. But, I'm just not into DC superheroes, and a few other things they've chosen. But, I needed a few more blocks to make my blanket the size I want. So, I made my own. Welcome to Night Vale is maybe a bit too niche, and Game of Thrones/A Song of Ice And Fire a bit too adult for their blanket, which is being auctioned off for Child's Play charity, but they're just right for my guest room. So, I decided to share my first two charts, which are a variation on WTNV's logo and Arya's Faceless Man coin.

If you're here for the beginner lessons, these may be beyond your comfort zone right now. But, they are small projects, so if you want to give it a try, check out their video. If you can knit and purl, you can double knit. The only thing that's new is keeping track of which color goes forward and which one goes back, and that's mostly just counting.
