K2tog and YO K, I’m Knitting Lace!

Blogged under learning2knit by Tammy on Sunday 25 May 2014 at 4:37 pm



Hopefully, I’m not getting too full of myself and will screw this up at some point, but hot diggity! Look at my scarf so far! This is the first project from the Knit Lab Craftsy class I’m taking. Before taking the class I already knew the knit stitch fairly well, and I had a basic understanding of purl, though not a purl lover when it come to knitting (pearls yes, but purls no). So I’ve been a tad bored with the class so far and even a little frustrated at time because it felt slow to me, but I take it all back. After knit and purl, we moved onto how to knit two stitches together (k2tog) and how to yarn over (YO) – easy peasy! Plus by combining these, we are actually make a little lace trip to the scarf.

I’m using some yarn I got during one of Drew Emborsky’s Mystery Yarn Sale. It’s Iconic in the Fer Sure colorway, and I’m using size 7 (US) Boye needles my mother gave me about a year ago. I won’t say my scarf is perfect at all. I goofed in spots, but it’s looking fairly decent, and I am thrilled to learn a few new stitch techniques and to discover how simple they are. They actually are not that dissimilar to yarn over and decreasing when it comes to crochet.

    Good job! Of all the crafts I’ve done in my life, knitting is still my favorite. Making an afghan now. Really nice yarn shop on Old Dixie in Vero.
