Still Knitting, Of Course

Of course I’m still knitting in between learning to spin.  Spinning is just shiny and new right now, and I’m excited about it.  Right now, I am knitting myself my Christmas present.

I’m currently knitting the Garter Rows Pullover from Lion Brand Yarns, which I’ve had my eye on for quite a long time, to be honest.  It’s mostly garter stitch and doesn’t seem to have too much shaping to it, and is good TV knitting.

I like LBY’s patterns.  Though they tend to reuse patterns in different yarn on their site, Garter Rows seems to be a unique animal there.  I’m knitting mine in their demonstration color, Ranch Red in Wool-Ease.  Anyway, LBY’s patterns generally easy to understand and well-written.  Sometimes I think their sizing may be off, even though my gauge swatch comes out correctly on the suggested needles.  I will see how this sweater turns out.

I’m also working on a Fair Isle hat pattern that I hope to have ready to go by the end of the month.

See?  Still knitting.
