I’m currently working on my first knitting project of the new year. I’m making a scarf with my mortal Beloveds, Jake and Trev, in mind.
I’ve ended up improvising a pattern, because the patterns I tried didn’t work with the yarn (I’m using this yarn [link].) I tried the star stitch, because that one is said to work well with thick-and-thin yarn, and all I got was hand cramps and frustration. I thought about knitting a drop stitch scarf, since I only have 220 yards, but the fuzziness of the yarn would make that more of a mess than it’d be worth.
Right now it’s a simple 2×2 rib stitch, knit lengthwise because I’d already cast on 130 stitches when I’d realized that drop stitch probably wouldn’t work with this yarn. It’s a simple knit, and so far I’m enjoying seeing how the varying texture and colors work together.
