Finally it is done. I started this back in January though it feels to me like I’ve been knitting it forever. I did learn a few things so that means it was a worthwhile project.
- Read the pattern. Don’t just print out the chart and go. Guess which I did? I cast on and bound off with the same needle I knit the body with. I wasn’t supposed to. The edge is going to curl. I might try curing that with a bit of elastic thread. Also I was supposed to cast on and bind off with the purple (contrasting color). I didn’t.
- The entire time I knit this I questioned why I was knitting it. Colorwork really isn’t something I enjoy knitting. Blame the evil stockings. Unfortunately I really like the way it looks. It’s really hard to mesh those two things.
This project is for The Great Loopy Knitting Challenge and for my own personal challenge of knitting 9 skeins of stash yarn in 2018. This project counts as 1 skein used.
