After conquering my first cardigan, I decided on a simpler project or two!
I also wanted to be able to practice Continental knitting, since I have been doing English knitting. I'm extremely slow! I heard Continental is faster so I thought I'd better give it a go! It felt really weird at first, like crocheting without a hook to grab the yarn.
I'm slowly getting the hang of it... I just really want to get faster!
I also learned the felted join. It's magical and fantastic by the way :)
Here is me wearing my creation when my Mum came down to Wellington to visit.
This scarf is a simple 2X2 rib. I've got my notes here on Ravelry: Pidge-Podge scarf. Fun fact- the yarn I used was actually frogged from my first scarf!
The next scarf was made from the yarn I won from Maryanne of The Hectic Eclectic (yay!!), and I made it for my husband!
This one was a bit more fancy but still simple enough. You can see my notes on my Ravelry here.
It has a neat diagonal pattern.
Looking as cheeky as always...
Sometimes it's nice to have a simpler project to work on in between the bigger ones :)
So everyone... which way do you knit- Continental or English? Tell me about your preferences!
