I know I have been an awfuly slow blogger recently but I have been super busy (as you can see from my twitter) and am planning to get back to blogging very soon! (starting with a blog about the puppy!) but for now I just wanted to give a few tips for anyone who is still keeping up with their twit knit project and is planning to finish on the fourth of July.
Start by laying out all your squares a flat surface so you can get a really clear idea of how they all fit together. Once you have arranged them and decided what squares look good with each other. It's time to begin sewing!
I used mattress stitch to sew my squares together. I'm not sure what other methods you could use but matress stitch worked perfectly for me and it gives this really beautiful seamless effect.
I had used it a little before but wanted to make sure I was doing it right so i found this amazing tutorial on knitty.com that really helped! If you need any advice here is the link - http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring04/mattress.html
I sewed up my squares in rows of four and then sewed the four rows of four together to make a square. You can do your sewing in anyway you choose but I found this method very succesfull.
After a big play with my yarn (which is looking a bit worse for wear) Puppy (who is now officially named POSY) decided she was most definitely not interested in twit knit club and had a big snooze while I finished my blanket.
Good luck with your sewing! And tweet me if you have any questions. See you on July 4th!
Love Scarly and Posy.
