I haven't posted any knitting for a couple of weeks because my knitting has been in time out as witnessed by this giant ball of Noro Kureyon yarn.
Now it didn't start as this giant ball, in fact it began as 3 separate skeins of Noro Kureyon
colorway 170 and it was knitted into this shawl, a free pattern called Be Simple that can be seen here.
However after knitting these 3 skeins I couldn't convince myself that I really liked this shawl. I didn't like how wide it was getting and it was very dense, which is my fault because I used Noro Kureyon when I should have used Noro Kureyon SOCK - a much lighter weight yarn. Oh well, at least with yarn you can re-knit it. I had purchased this yarn with this pattern in mind - The Original Half Granny Square Shawl - another free pattern you can see here. I think I'll try this pattern instead.
And then there is my Pamuya shawl - here's a link to that pattern but it isn't a free one.
This one is also in time out as I need to frog several rows to get back on track. I haven't been in the mood to do that so it has been sitting in a basket next to my chair for weeks. It isn't the shawl's fault, it is mine. Bad knitter!
I really should just stick to socks like this pair I knit with Opal yarn. I forget which line it was, sorry.
A lovely pair of fraternal twin socks, my favorite kind to knit... mindless... but always come out great.
I think I'll go cast on another pair of socks. I need a project that I know will work out.
happy knitting -
