Here is a lime shawl knit with “Goldilocks”, which is 56% kid 24% silk 20% nylon. Could it be any easier? Start with three stitches. Add one at the start of each row. Knit in garter stitch. Cast off loosely (my friend Tarantula Pants told me to cast off with larger needles, which worked very well.) Impress your friends and relatives who know nothing about knitting... they don't have to know it's just a giant triangle. This was a good project to work on during boring car trips.
Here is a mostly red scarf, knit with “Slubby” (100% wool) and “Rapunzel” (56% kid 24% silk 20% nylon):
And a close-up (Rasta fringe!):
Same idea, different colours:
Okay, time perhaps to knit something more technically challenging? Yeah, once I finish churning out a hot pink shawl like the lime one above! :)
Now the hubby is interested in learning to knit. He is fascinated by the “Slubby” stuff. I am thrilled. I have been trying to get him to knit for years. I now have an excuse to drag him back to the knitting store where I dropped $164.00 a mere three weeks ago.
