This week was all about new skills! I finished up my stockinette scarf and gave blocking a try. It was easy to learn how to block after checking out a few YouTube videos. However, apparently things made up of the stockinette stitch like to roll up on themselves and refuse to flatten. So.
Onto Scarf No. 2. I decided that I would try to learn the Seed Stitch. I love it! It is easy and though I have to really concentrate, the result is so beautiful! I started working on the scarf in the french blue and realized that I was going to use up all of the french blue yarn that I have before the scarf would be completed. I decided to dip into a navy blue of the same type of yarn that I was planning to use for the third scarf. I learned how to switch colors (which I swore that I would never learn how to do a month ago) by watching a video. The color changes are really not very professional looking and I don't know how much I actually like the stripes, but I will continue to persevere.
Oh we are reading the same book! My kids are just loving it, I'm excited to get the second one for them. :) This week I'm sharing a sneak peek of the Sunday Sweater I'm test knitting for Ginny. Stop by if you have a moment!
I'll pop over right now!
