Well, apparently I can be a bit of a Bitty at times – or very Jutlantic…or so I’m told…But I really do hate waste. In any form.
And having finished this project, well, maybe there is something to it. Just a little bit bitty at times. But I just hate to throw things out that is perfectly usable. Just can’t say it enough.
Combining this with the fact that I can’t just sit I need something in my hands to work on – and also I needed something for my neck. Too warm for wither scarf and not warm enough to go without. And also accessories…love…
I had a huge bag og old, vintage wool yarns for sock mending – some inherited from my grandmother and great grandmother. I do knit socks but it is years between I mend any of them. So – I’ve had it for years, and admittingly it isn’t just fabric I have a lot of…it is alo yarn.
Nothing much to it – just back and forth on a circular needle size 2 – yes I took the easy way out and didn’t want to spend time on anything much more intricate than regular knit (not even purling). I did a little bit of pattern to make a scalloped edge – but that was about it.
All it took was time – due to the number of stitches and size of needles and I even did go up two sizes from where I started. I didn’t have the size one needles in circular so it just became too annoying to handle.
But sadly (or not – as well, I still need something in my hands – and most knitting projects are easier to bring with me than sewing projects) there is still sock yarn left – also I found a bunde of embroidery yarn…silks, wools, cotton…so next bitty knitty project is mittens to go with the scarf I think.
