I’ve been on a cast on kick recently. My goal is to cast on some easy knitting, something I can work on in a dark movie theater. I’ve been failing miserable but at least that means I’ve got interesting knitting on the needles!
I showed you my baby blanket progress yesterday. It’s super fun to knit. I’m loving the progress. Here’s an alternate view…
The beauty of this project…it’s worked in the round. I’m essentially knitting a big tube. This is a view of the seam, aka the spot I plan to cut open. This is such a brilliant idea. I love it! Once I’ve cut it open, it will lay flat and these plain stockinette bits will be unraveled into fringe. And, as the icing on the cake, I’m not purling at all! To get those purl ridges, I’m simply turning the piece inside out and working those stitches as knits! Yay for all knits!
Sadly, this next project, has entire rows of purls. The HORROR!
It’s been tough but I’m managing. Mostly because the yarn is so incredible! This is the qiviut I was recently gifted. It’s going to be a simple feather and fan cowl. This yarn is absolutely wasted if it’s not next to skin. With June Gloom right around the corner, timing could not be more perfect!
I’m making progress on my Askews Me shawl as well. It’s slow going though. I’ll miss the June Gloom but with a bit of luck, it’ll be ready for Fogust. Here at FogKnits, we really love Fogust.
I’m just about to add my first stripe! Assuming I don’t get distracted by another cast on, which is highly likely. I’ve been looking at this neutral palate for weeks. I think it’s time for a Black Panther wrap!
