See the beautiful pink knit blanket? Thomas' girlfriend, Sam, knit that for Emmy for Christmas. She is an avid knitter!
I finished up a few Christmas projects and am happy to be starting fresh on some ideas. The two projects cast on in the picture above are scarves. I found a nice simple pattern that I really don't have to count or keep track!
Here is the pattern:
Cast on 22 stitches
Knit 2 rows
Here is the repeat -
Row 1: Knit
Row 2: Knit 2, Purl to 2 stitches from the end, Knit 2
Row 3: Knit 2, Knit 2 together (3 x), Increase 1, Knit 1 (6 times), Knit 2 together (3x), Knit 2
Row 4: Knit
Using a heavier worsted weight yarn (peace fleece) and size 10 needles, it knits up quickly.
I am reading a Wendell Berry book of essays - Home Economics. Berry is one of my favorite authors and we are excited to have become friends with a family from church that agree and
are sharing their library with us.
Looking forward to sharing projects and books this coming year with the Yarn Along at Small Things.
