“As you knit these shaded squares you’ll enjoy watching the colors and textures create a unique pattern. This scarf will take any outfit out of the doldrums!”
Humble beginnings. My knitting is definitely improving, but I have a long way to go to be completely satisfied with the results. This is a super simple pattern. I find that if I put a stitch counter (one that you can count backwards with) on my circulars, it is very easy to keep track of the rows. This way I don’t have to keep track on the pattern itself. That was kind of a pain.
As for the yarn . . . I only wish the color changes were not so subtle. But, we’ll see how it turns out in the end. I think I would like to try this pattern again with a different yarn. Anyone have a favorite self-striping yarn? I am up for suggestions. (Perhaps after I try to use up some of my seemingly endless yarn stash.)
So, what I have learned from this project is how to better pick up stitches, and how to cast on in the middle of a project.
Please, share your thoughts. I love hearing from you guys. Gives me hope. 😀
Oh, btw . . . how long should I continue categorizing myself as a ‘beginner’ knitter??? LOL
