Knitting stuff and going on and on.

Thursday, October 19, 2006

Oh yes, there has been knitting.

All done! I really like how this turned out. It was a fiddly pain in the hinney, but very worth the end result.

You'll have to click on the link to see the back of it since I added it after the fact and had to use Photobucket to do it because Blogger doesn't play well after you start writing a post.
It's backside

Materials:

1 ball solid colour 100% cotton DK weight
1 ball varigated 100% mercerized cotton DK weight
4mm (US 6) knitting needles
tapestry needle

Pattern:

Note: Wind 3 bobbins of the solid colour since you can't carry it across the back. You can carry the varigated all the way across or wind off 3 bobbins of that. I wound bobbins so that the colours wouldn't completely match up in the squares. Just my little oddities coming out again.

Cast on 42 sts - solid
Rows 1-4: Knit - solid
*Row 5: K4 solid, K10 varigated, K2 solid, K10 varigated, K2 solid, K10 varigated, K4 solid.
Row 6: K4 solid, P10 varigated, K2 solid, P10 varigated, K2 solid, P10 varigated, K4 solid.*
Repeat * to * for another 10 rows (each "pane" should have 12 rows of colour).
Rows 17-18: Knit solid
Rows 19-30: Repeat * to * for twelve rows.
Rows 31-32: Knit solid
Rows 33-44: Repeat * to * for twelve rows.
Rows 45-48: Knit solid
Cast off
Weave in ends.

Admire your pretty.

The Chenille got to come out of the Naughty Corner. I dropped another needle size and now it seems to be doing well for the striping thing. I really love this yarn. Too bad it had to stay in the corner for so long.


The sock is slowly growing. It's a fast knit, it just isn't being made by a fast knitter.

  • what a fun way to practice intarsia (which I have been too chicken to try).

    do you know you can drag photos around in blogger? it can be irksome, but it will let you upload photos in any order, then place them in the correct text spot.

  • The stained glass effect with the colours you've chosen looks like a sunset. Very pretty!

  • Sooo pretty. And thank you for sharing the pattern. Glad the chenile is done with it's time out. Have you tried socks on two circulars? I'm a r...e...a..l..l..y slow knitter but I find it goes a lot faster that way.

  • "It's a fast knit, it just isn't being made by a fast knitter."

    This is the single most accurate statement I think I have ever heard a knitter use. I would like to take it home with me and adopt it as my own.

    The squares is exquisit.

  • i like that it looks like you're on the couch on a lazy day looking out the window and all you can see is the sky just before the day starts to thinking about being over.

    i'm impressed with your backside!
