Not Much Goin’ On

red and blue ribbed scarf

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!

New Book!

Cables Untangled book cover

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…

    Funny, same thing was happening to me, so I started looking for another two color scarf I could switch to and found your scarf on google images. I think I’ll try it. G.
