another one

After this happened, I had to knit a new one. I used the same yarn, but to make things a tiny bit more interesting I reversed the colours.

Since this was my third time knitting the pattern, I’ve become quite a pro. Thus here are some useful technical tips.

I used this cast-on – it completely and elegantly eliminates the hole at cast-on point and is very easy to work. I love it!

I held the yarn more loosely at colour changes to avoid an ugly “seam”. This seems to work quite well, though with a finer yarn I might need a more sophisticated method.

And I remembered to weave in my ends before doing the decreases. Yay! (If you don’t understand what I’m saying, have a lookie here ;)

It won’t be my last either. The next will go to the fella who was kind enough to take these lovely photos for me.

Have a great weekend everyone! :)

About fridica

I started knitting completely by accident, when I was visiting my parents for a holiday in 2008. On a boring Sunday afternoon, I decided to dig through their stash of books to see if there was anything interesting to take back to my apartment. A knitting manual happened to be one of the books I found. I got curious, my mom immediately dug out her old needles and yarn stash (which she hadn’t used in a decade at least), and in a few minutes we were both casting on - she by memory, I by following the instructions from the book… :) Since I normally prefer learning from books, this was ideal.. I took the book home with me, and very very soon - I was an addict.
