Round and round

These aren’t the best photos, I took them quicky durning class because of how much I love it. I love the changing colours all the time. I love recycling scraps or abandoned half balls.

How I’m transporting my knitting

  

I feel this 10 stitch twist blanket really reflects my knitting. It’s colourful like me and I love the different shape. I love being able to look back and see a jumper or a hat. 

The colours from another angle.

 90% of the time I have something to knit in my bag when I’ve got a break or a bit of free time. Even lazy mornings in Starbucks. 

The best needles are in my opinion circular, I like interchangeable because for me they work well. However after a disaster I had with a shawl I’m not keen to put anything to fancy or complicated on them. They also fold down and I can’t lose the second needle in my bag.

And the blanket this aftetnoon on my knees.

Anyway I’ll keep updating on this obsession so I’ll finish here. If I don’t finish the yarn first…

    I love this! Do you find knitting in the round to be pretty easy to get used to? I’m dying to learn how to do it!

      Yes, it’s the same skills. To begin with I found dpns easier but if you’re doing a cowl it’ll be fine a circle.

      This is actually worked flat.

        DPNs scare me. I know that sounds silly, but the idea of working with them is intimidating :\

        Try it! I’ve taken them out in my bag before but I don’t recommend it. And YouTube can help you out if you’re stuck. Honestly it’s the same techniques but instead of working the reverse side you’re always working the outside.

        Go for a cowl or a simple hat to try it and you’ll see! My first try was for baby socks and it was fine!
