A few weeks ago I joined a group called WIP Wednesday (WIP= Work In Progress) where people share their latest craft projects (Thanks Shellyfish for hosting this and Jumbleberry Jam for introducing me!). I love seeing what other people are working on and it inspires and motivates me to make time to feed my creative needs... so *knock on wood* I will try to do this every week :)
This is my latest project. Honestly, I'm not sure what this is going to be. I bought this yummy yarn the same week that I learned to knit months ago and picked it up again recently to use for practice. Because I am doing a simple knit and purl, the piece is curving inward (if that makes any sense) so it's a little cock-eyed for a scarf. I haven't learned how to increase and decrease yet, I'm just going back and forth 25 stitches (or so). I've fallen in love with this colorway- Ocean by Noro- and I'd like to buy more, but have to figure out what to do with it before I can justify the purchase. After a fitful beginning trying to relearn how to cast on again, I've finally picked up the groove and rhythm of knitting and am totally addicted! So I'm going to keep knitting this little piece until I get to the end of the ball of yarn and hope for some inspiration for it's use. Right now I'm thinking that's almost a good width and length for a toddler sweater sleeve and I can use a solid color for the body and piece it all together... so my experienced knitting gurus, what sayeth you... is it possible?
Clicking happily away...
