I’m a little late to the (Friday) party everyone. I’m not really sure about this one, but just a couple of pics of what I’m working on. I’m just sort of making it up as I go, or more accurately, trying to figure out what someone else has done already. We shall see how it unfolds. I can’t buy the pattern, so I am just giving it a whirl myself. I know that’s not the cool thing to do. The cool thing would be to buy the pattern, but I just can’t. So I’m challenging myself to learn something about knitting construction to see if I can understand what is being done with the shape. This is something I can do with sewing, but I have put in lots more time sewing than I have knitting. Sewing just makes sense to me. I hope to be able to learn this about knitting too.
I am really trying to like garter stitch, but I just don’t like the way it looks. Sure, its fun to just knit and knit and knit, but it seems, I don’t know…sort of like cheating to me. Like only eating the frosting and leaving the cake on the plate for someone else. I like that with stockinette there is a smooth pretty side. Garter seems to me to be the wrong side on both sides. What do you think? Garter or Stockinette? Which do you prefer?
Happy Friday Everyone.
