Just in time for the cold (read: soon-to-be frigid) weather here in western PA…I finished my GAP-tastic Cowl. It has been in my Ravelry queue for probably going on 2 years now. (And by the way, if you’re on Ravelry too, add me as a friend! I don’t know that many people on there, and it’s fun to see what my friends are doing.
Anway…the Gap-tasic Cowl. It’s ridiculously huge, bulky, and squishy. And need I say warm? I love it! I used just 2 skeins of Lion Brand Wool-Ease thick & quick, with size 13 needles. Whoa. Talk about a fast knit. I did most of it while at a conference – sitting in an arena for about 6-8 hours a day, for two days – this projects was perfect for that. It’s a “mindless knit," meaning there are no charts or complicated patterns to follow. It’s knitted in moss stitch (or seed stitch, I always get those confused)…but anyway, it goes “knit, purl, knit, purl…….” until you’re done. (Basically.) Wanna see some pics? :)
|Check out those stitches! Love it!|
I know my one "real life" knitter (crocheter/spinner/yarn dye-r/general fiber magician) friend Allena is a reader here. When I was learning to knit, she was the one whohttp://www.skiptomylou.org/
fixed all my mistakes for me helped me figure out how to fix my own mistakes (ahem), and showed me more advanced things, such as "picking up stitches" and all that nonsense. Do I have any other knitting friends here?
