Notes

I looked at all my WIPs and, while I love each one of them, I decided I need something mindless and easy and quick. I saw this pattern a few days ago and decided this is the ticket.

4 Sept 2011: Decided to cast on 130sts as per the pattern and keep knitting until I run out of yarn. Well, try to get at least 20 garter ridges per colour. The yardage per ball of this yarn obviously didn’t match so I had to borrow a bit from remnant skeins to finish a couple of the stripes. Other than that, it’s such a delightful knit. The Shine Sport is cool to the skin so I drape it over my lap as I knit and it’s comforting. I’m doing at least one stripe/skein per day. Not sure how big I want this to be but maybe just 10 stripes. If it goes well I might do another one.

16 Sept 2011: Okay my craving for garter stitch is now satisfied. I declare this project complete. I enjoyed working with the yarn so I’m sure I will be using it again.

Only did 3 sets of stripes per colour, and gave me a big enough blanket to drape on my lap while watching TV and knitting.
