Sorry for dropping off the Blogosphere for so long. Things have been crazy busy here, and rather than trying to catch up I’m just going to apologize for being lame, and jump right back into what I’m up to now.

There was a lot of educated guessing and a little bit of luck involved in planning this (as well as a good application of yarn mathematics), but I now know how much of white and blue I have, and I have a plan for how to fit them together:
Except, of course, that the individual motifs are round rather than rectangular, but it’s good enough to get a picture of how it will all work. So, that’s what I’m up to, and I’ll try to do a better job of keeping in touch.
