Here I am again. I switched gears and thought I would knit a little something. I started out thinking I would make a few knitted washcloths to get some practice on my knit and purl stitches but~ it turned out to be a very long scarf instead. I think it came out pretty nice...don't you think?
I even got Lauren to model it for me, which was a shocker.....
I used 2 balls of Sugar and Cream 100% cotton yarn in "Sonoma". It's a cream color with specks of natural colors mixed in....Love, love, love it! It also has this soft squishy feeling to it which makes it even more lovely. Now, if I would have made this crochet, it surely would not have come out the same. There is something about things 'Knitted" that I am in love with. I want to make more......
.....and that's exactly what I am doing now.
I started on another blanket but this one will be knitted. So far, it's slow growing and it might take me forever to finish. I also am unsure sure on what needle to use. I first tried with long straight needles, size 10, and it made my hands hurt. It felt heavy, so I ripped it out and started over with the only circular needle that I have. Please don't ask what size it is cause I threw the package away and I can't remember to save my life .....and..... someone, please tell why isn't the size marked somewhere on the circular needles like the crochet ones? and what will be a good circular needle to use to make a blanket? or ..... or you supposed to use the straight ones instead? My circular needle might be too long but I am using it anyways for now. I think if I find better needles, I can just move my stitches onto the right ones without any trouble Please don't laugh....it's all so confusing and different and I am still learning.
Talk again soon. Shari xx
