Colorful Yarn

Knitting

I started knitting in September 2019. I'm still quite new to it, but I absolutely love it. This is a journal/log of my work so far.

03. Macaw Ripple Scarf

Date Finished: Feb 22 2020

I wanted to learn some lace stitches so I did some digging and found this simple lace pattern. I doubled it and made it longer than the pattern required. It ended up being nice and squishy because of the length but was a bit curlier than I would have liked.

02. Deep Water Beanie

Date Finished: Feb 2 2020

This was my first time knitting in the round and I ambitiously decided to go ith the flow and not use a pattern. All in all, it's pretty okay considering I had no idea how to construct and shape a hat, but the stitches on the top came out a bit bumpy because I winged it. I do really love the button I found at a local fabric shop.

01. A colorful first scarf

Date Finished: Oct 1 2019

I spent the first two hours of learning to knit watching the same youtube video repeatedly and failing to replicate it. Once I got the hang of the knit stitch, I spent the next hour trying to get to the tenth row with 20 stitches and ripping the whole thing out and restarting when I made a mistake. When I was confident I could do it, I cast on the scarf.
