Not much going on in my knitting world… I’ve been working on this simple two-color ribbed scarf for my four-year-old son. It’s a simple 2×2 rib. Originally I started it in Brioche Stitch, but I kept dropping stitches and found it impossible to re-seat them properly on the needles when that happened. I dozed off a couple of times while knitting, and would awake to dropped stitches, so rather than rip out and start over for a fifth time, I copped out and switched to simple ribbing. It’s ok, my little boy won’t notice the difference; he’ll be happy to finally have his mom-made scarf. (He’s been asking for one for a while, but I’ve felt he’s been too little for a scarf. Wouldn’t want it to get tangled up on the playground!
I finally received the long awaited Melissa Leapman book,
Cables Untangled: An Exploration of Cable Knitting. Wow! What beautiful designs! There’s even a reversible cable scarf design in here, which is a concept I’ve been playing with.
I have a total fear of charted knitting patterns, and of course, this book is full of charts! I know my eyes will drive me nuts on this one. But I love cables so much that I’m willing to give it a try. This book has quite a few patterns in it, but it is also filled with stitch designs too…. plenty to keep the avid cabler quite busy! Love this book!
All for now…
