via Instagram https://instagr.am/p/B_Gmv_PjDkD/ First mask by request done: Dad’s in grey. (Why does my grey hair photograph so dark sometimes?) Now that the big Scottish heads are covered 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 😀, I have to either tighten the gauge or lessen the stitch count, or both, for Mom and my mother-in-law. This one can be found at https://ravel.me/CarlaYarn/osfw2, though it’s the same as mine. I think I will take out two rib repeats for Mom’s and Margaret’s; I’ll keep taking copious notes, in case y’all want to make these yourselves. Dad’s has the same pick-up-and-knit inner filter and pocket of fifteen stitches with no. 5 needle. I bound off the mask with the K2tog bind off, and that seems to be stretchy enough.

A healthy person should be able to crank these out quickly; I am having to stop often due to hand pain, to stretch and rest. But they are still moving along nicely.
