stitching, quilting, fabric, projects
This lovely Koigu merino yarn was on sale at Purl Soho, there was only one skein left and I didn’t know what I would use it for. Needless to say I couldn’t walk past it and having just completed another quilt I had itchy fingers. I rooted out my Addi 3.5mm circular needles, stretched out a long tail and cast on about 100 sts until it ran out (I didn’t count).
I joined into a circle and just knit………….round and round………….loving the colour interactions………..until the ball started to get small (and IT was about 6″ deep). Then I did a few rounds of purl (to stop the curl), then back to knit, relaxing, mindless.
IT started to look like a cowl, too big for a hat.
Haha, I counted the stitches when I cast off – 151!
I think I’ll need to go back and do something about the curl on the other edge.
