Knitting Knitting Knitting… I cast on for the Great Divide Shawl last night. And after knitting a few rows, I ripped it out and cast on again.
Anyone do a yarn over while purling? I completely jacked it up the first go-around. I watched a few YouTube videos, which helped. However, if these stitches were called ‘purl overs’ I might not have needed the video instruction. Just throwing that out to the universe…
Wow. I forgot how much I love the feel of Madelinetosh Tosh DK. I don’t exactly love the price tag of a single hank ($22 for 220 yards)… but I do understand that I get what I pay for. Anyway, I’m really not thinking of the cost – knitting this is an absolute dream. The stitch pattern is fun, and I’m now in a groove where the ‘s1, k1, yo, psso both sts’ is (not quite, but close) flying off my needles.
I’m using the Farmhouse White as my main color with the Jasper for the contrast. I waffled between a few accent colors – more blue? more gray? – but the helpful employee at Fancy Tiger choose Jasper. Which was my #1 choice too.
