It has been quite some time since I've last ...
A: updated this blog
B: attempted to practice my knit stitches.
At our local "Coffee, Crochet & Chat" session I pulled out the project pictured above. It is a scarf I am knitting out of Caron's "Bliss" yarn I had found buried deep in my yarn stash, using a pair of "I love knitting" bamboo Chicagoo knitting needles (I don't recall where I got the needles from), size 13/ 9mm
Knowing I'm a die-hard fan of crocheting, it is very, very rare for me to actually play with sticks, and even more rare for me to bring such a project out in public - thus the "gasp" made by those sitting around the table, eyeing my latest project.
I do want to credit the Amazing Needle (a crochet technique now more popular under the name of "knooking") for strenghening my skills & knowledge of creating knit stitches. Even though I KNOW I make my knit & purl stitches backwards, if I'm not frowning while making them, then all is [still] well with the world.
Does this mean I'm going to venture more into the world of knit? I'm not sure. I'm just taking it one yarn over at a time.
