Another way to use the blog and keep the camera busy… weekly updates on crafty things…and yes, I actually wrote myself a note to remember to blog on tuesdays about crafty things. Such is my memory these days.
So….I started what I think is going to be a scarf…but at times it has visions of blanket grandeur. Is it insane to think about knitting a blanket out of fingering weight yarn?
I started this as a project to bring on a January holiday and either I’ll be sick of knitting it by the time it’s a scarf, or I won’t want to stop and it’ll become a blanket. Lord knows I have an incredible stash of sock yarn as well as a huge stash of leftovers. And sure, if it’s a blanket then it will be a very light blanket, but who doesn’t need a light blanket when heavy is too much? Or maybe a shawl to drape around myself when I’ve got a chill…which happens during all four seasons for me.
Using scraps, the linen stitch and size 6 needles, I cast on 418 stitches. I meant to do 400 stitches, but didn’t feel like recounting and really, 400…418…it doesn’t matter. It’s a lot of stitches and it’s going to be long at 65 inches. Or wide if it’s a blanket. Time will tell.
