OK so it’s very clear I’m the newbie in the Yarn Along group when I look at everyone else’s pictures, but that’s OK!
So this week I’m working on a bookmark. This is actually bookmark 2.0. I’ve discovered a few things about knitting:
- I need to keep my cast on stitches loose, or I have to start again.
- I have to not grab one ply of yarn and make that stitch, thereby creating TWO stitches from ONE yarn strand….
So I’ve started this book mark a few times. I did a tiny one earlier today, which was acceptable. This one is a lot better. There are still mistakes. I am ignoring them.
I’m using my harmony needles #5, and Knitpicks Palette yarn in Huckleberry Heather, which I just love. The yarn feels very nice and knits up really well. I’m planning on getting some more colors that the pattern suggested. It’s a fingering weight yarn.
As for reading, I just finished Veronica Roth’s Insurgent, which is number 2 in her Divergent trilogy. I usually have to read these books twice so that I get all the details Roth puts in, but that’s fine.
