Joining Knitting and Reading Yarn Along today. Always fascinating to see what is on the needles/crochet hooks and book shelves of crafters from all over the world!
Reading. I seem to switch from fiction to non-fiction these days. After finishing “A Moveable Feast” for the second time, I started “The Universe in a Nutshell” by Stephen Hawking. Oh, physics, why didn’t I pay attention to you at school?!! You are fascinating! Thank you, Montessori, for waking me back to the search for knowledge. It’s a truly fascinating read that makes you look at the world around you with a completely new vision.
Knitting. I am afraid I am going to bore you soon with this project 🙂 But I love working on it so much that I want to share with you as much as possible. I am getting to the hem and after trying the recommended in pattern ribbing, I decided to switch to the moss stitch. As I am trying to make it into a reversible sweater, I am trying stitches that will look good on both sides, but slightly different. Moss stitch creates a great contrast with stockinette.
And it blurs in with reverse stockinette on the opposite side. You won’t be able to notice that I switched to another stitch pattern, but it gives me two advantages – the hem won’t roll up and be more stable.
The yardage of yarn is really generous – I used only two skeins for the whole body and I am sure the last ball will be more than enough for both sleeves. Though I was in panic when I realized that I left the yarn on the porch for the whole sunny day. It seems like colors slightly faded. Well, if the color of sleeves will be significantly different from the body we can pretend that it was an interesting designer’s decision 🙂
I hope you are enjoying your week, your projects and your reading!
