Now that the book is done (done!), I’ve got a little more time and I decided to start knitting again. Rather than finish one of my on-going projects (that would be too sensible), I’ve started something new. A mini shawl/scarf affair made with an elongated garter stitch. As it’s the first time I’ve used circular needles, I chose a simple pattern and I’m thoroughly enjoying it. It’s growing quickly, too, which is always nice.
Although the pattern states fingering-weight yarn, I’m using Rowan Damask DK. It’s made from viscose and linen so it has a nice drape and is pretty fine for double-knit. Better yet, it’s on offer at the moment at Black Sheep Wools.
