Remember this cowl from yesterday Although I have knit many socks, and a few other items, I’m still a beginner when it comes to knitting. This pattern has several “new to me” techniques. First was the new cast on. I think I have that learned now having practiced it three times. Next came the cables which caused me to take rows out several times. And the last thing I noticed is that the twisted stitches weren’t all twisted and my piece looked like a beginner piece. So I put all the yarn back on the ball and have started over again. Now I’m only about 6 rows into the project.
But I bet when I finish this project, I’ll understand a lot more about these techniques! I’m glad this is a small project. And isn’t that why we do some of these things – for the learning involved. I could just go buy something like this, but what fun would that have been?
Since this is a day of rest, the project has been put on hold until at least Sunday. I’ll be driving about 3 hours to a class on spinning for 3 days and will try to blog, but I doubt there will be much knitting time.
