The get-together last night brought forth some great ideas and some puzzling questions about how to proceed. So, until our next spin-in, here are the guidelines for the Su Doku project.
  • Be sure you have signed up for your 9-patch. We need two more people to complete the puzzle.
  • You may use anything from your own stash.
  • Yarn should be spun approximately DK weight (final yarn that you knit with should be approximately 10-12 wpi)
  • Each small square in the 9-patch should measure 3 inches square when it is completed. The 9-patch will be 9 inches square.
  • Use stockinette stitch except that 2 squares should incorporate a textured (knit-purl) stitch.
  • Knit squares using the intarsia method (rather than separate squares sewn together).
  • Each number is assigned a color. Squares 1-3 will be the 3 colors you have chosen from your stash. #1 should be in the red to violet family, #2 should be in the blue to green family and #3 should be in the yellow to orange family. #4 should be a complementary color to either #1, #2 or #3. #5-7 should use white, gray or black to blend with any of the first 4 colors (ie white + #2, #4 blended with white, gray and black, any combination you can think of, which can also include a plying technique instead of blending fibers before spinning). #8-9 should be 2 combinations of 2 of any of the first 4 colors blended or plied together.
  • If you have a great idea that doesn't fall into the above classifications, knit a separate square to lay on top of your 9 patch or someone else's to change the look of the 9-patch. (Hope that made sense). Just one or two extra squares, not a complete 9-patch.
  • We will try to meet November 2nd, 16th, 17th, 18th or 19th. Email me with your preferences for a day.
