it’s been a while

It’s been quite a while since I indulged in my favorite knitting activity, so I decided to rectify that today.

I worked at the computer because I had to follow the video instructions for the cast-on. It took me several attempts, and at the moment I’m not sure about my gauge so I might have to do it again. But I’ve taken a liking to this cast-on, which is supposed to produce an extremely stretchy edge, so I wouldn’t mind practising it some more.

The yarn I’m using is Debbie Bliss cashmerino aran, and it is a total joy! I’m a little scared as to how it will hold up with use, though, it seems to be giving some hints of piling…

Have a lovely Sunday, everyone! :) I suggest you do something you really like, but haven’t done in a while… It’s been a thrill for me to rediscover this old love… :)
