After all the frantic stitching to finish Tash & Kids I have neglected my knitting projects and have been feeling guilty for it. How to counteract that? Getting knitting of course 😀
Now bear in mind that I am teaching myself to knit and as I really need to concentrate on anything that is more than a standard knit a line or purl a line, it’s rather slow going with frequent unravellings so my output is somewhat minimal compared to those who actually know what they are doing. This means that my output is not what others would achieve but I am ecstatic because its huge for me 😀 AND this was only a weekends work.
First up we have a Reverse Stocking Stitch Stripe Square. A nice, easy little stitch that cost me no frustration or rude words although if you look closely you can see that I have accidentally added an extra line into a couple of rows. I didn’t notice until well above them so at this stage they can stay there. I may add it to the pile of re-do’s that I am accumulating for after I have stitched them all, but it’s not hugely noticeable so I may just call it ‘artistic license’ and leave it at that.
Next we have Step Stitch Square which totally freaked me out and near caused me to wet myself when I saw the pattern but surprisingly I found it a doddle and really enjoyed the process 🙂
Third up was the Stocking Stitch with Garter Stitch Stripe Square which I have to say is one of the ugliest things I have made for a while
And last, but not least, we have a Basketweave Square which I am relieved to say, is not as ugly as the one above it.
All the knitting for the weekend went great with only a few minor hiccups so I am stocked to have made that much progress. I do have to admit that it is mostly due to Dry July. Because I can’t have a wine I’m knitting lol
So that’s this weeks miniscule round-up.
