Put a Fork in It: 1st Knitted Craftsy Project

Blogged under learning2knit by Tammy on Monday 2 June 2014 at 4:22 pm



Here it is blocked, tails woven in, all done, my first Knit Lab project! I already knew garter stitch fairly well before taking this class, and I had a little bit of a handle on purling. However, along with covering those stitches, this project taught me how to knit two stitches together, yarn over, and steam block. And I kind of like the finished project because it’s small and relatively fast to make.

The yarn is from Drew Emborsky’s Decades line of yarns in the Iconic blend and Fer Sure colorway. I used size 7 needles, just some very old aluminum Boyes my mom gave me from her old knitting stash, as she no longer knits.

The next project in the class is another scarf (le sigh….really tired of scarves I have to admit), but I’m pressing on and hope to finish this class before my summer break is over.

    HI T
    I love that purple color you used. I like it blocked and un-blocked as well. Two totally different looks. How long did it take you? I worked on my diligently and was finished with it in about 3-4 days or so.
    Thanks for the link to show me yours!! I am loving the class…. excited to see what’s next.

    That yarn is from the Crochet Dude’s line. I was nice to work with. I took the class over a school break, so I also was able to focus almost totally on the class and do little else, which for me is a better way to learn. I also took a few days to make that scarf, and I was just in heaven afterwards and felt like I finally had my knitting chops! Thanks for the comments!
