An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever
Saturday, July 11, 2020
I promised a friend I'd knit something with this very thick wool, after someone else had given up on it. My sympathies are with the lady who threw in the towel, I have to say, it's not easy to work with. I found my largest needles, bigger than 10 mm, and a pattern I have used before, Drop Stitch Scarf by Christine Vogel on Ravelry. I cast on 26 stitches, as per the pattern. Then Jack asked if I was knitting a knee rug and I thought that was a good idea, so started again with 46 stitches.
Hmm, the wool doesn't go very far; I've almost run out and the proportions are wrong. I may need to start again with 36 stitches. No, no, I'm not going to give up yet!
