Knitting again!

Okay, so I admittedly haven’t written much here lately. But it’s not because I’ve been generally unproductive in my life! I am taking two very challenging courses to finish up my Master’s of Library Science, and working full time, still.

And I’ve jumped back into knitting as the weather has turned cold. My latest creation: a scarf for my little brother!

Here’s a close-up of the pattern (it’s English Rose Tweed, done with thirty stitches across on 6.5 mm needles using Paton Shetland Chunky yarn.

It’s super plush!

I will hopefully be back to a more regular writing schedule by the new year at the latest. I love you all!

Knitting – Basketweave scarf

This one was on a much lighter weight yarn than I’d worked with before, and took a lot more time to get through than my earlier projects, but I love the results!

This one was done with Red Heart Shimmer yarn in hot pink, with a two-by-two mini-basketweave pattern, and three-stitch wide border of garter stitch. I used two balls, and wound up with a nice wide scarf at about 9′ long!

Knitting

Oh! I also knit, so I’ll be keeping a record of completed projects here. I don’t have photos of my first few projects (one scarf, two hats), but I’ll start taking pictures of them all from here on out. This one is a scarf I made for my mom for Christmas. It’s just basic knit 1 purl 1 ribbing.Image
