|What’s In YOUR Wallet? or Bag?|
Happy Monday, Dear Reader! I’ve gotten some of my design mojo back and have been playing with some different knitting designs. This morning, as I waited for the bus, I checked the Bus Tracker tool. It said the next bus wouldn’t be there for 27 minutes. Aside from making me late for work, that meant I had time to get some knitting done.
Then, mid-row, what do I see but a bus? Holy crap. Try stuffing size 10 needles in an already over-stuffed knitting bag and grabbing everything to get onto the bus.
This is what I’m making with my size 10 needles. One of my books has an afghan on the cover that’s made out of triangles. I decided to take a twist on that idea and using a base of 35 stitches, make a sampler with leftover yarns and different textures.
This is a Turkish Stitch done in Lion Brand Homespun. It’s a boucle-type of yarn and difficult to see stitch definition; however, I like the less dense look of the fabric. I find the juxtaposition of the bias pull of the stitch with the decreased edge for the triangle to be an interesting opposition.
What are you working on?
