Playing with Yarn

 I still knit by hand-a dishcloth just rolled out from under my needles!  
A basketweave design of k3p3 for 6 rows and change...
Premier cotton on #6 needles.
 Continuing on my Ribbing Class, I did this sampler of 1 x 1 rib on the bottom 
moving into English Rib followed by Fisherman Rib at the top;
  noting how each rib works at a very different gauge over the same number of needles!
 This stitch is called Waffle Rib;  it looks like a common 1 x 1 rib on the back.
 This is Double Waffle Rib which is the same on both sides-
a real squishy rib and easy to work;
I think this would be a good all over pattern for future sweaters.
 And with my homework done, I did a pinwheel dishcloth with two different colors changing colors in the center so there weren't a ton of ends to work in when I finished the circle!
And this is the first cuff of the mittens but I should've used red for the stripes 
and I forgot to change colors
 and now I have to rip it out so I guess I will have to grin and get to it!


  1. Lovely variety of ribbing - the waffle rib would make a nice sweater.

  2. Well, better to rip it out now that a few inches from now! Love all the ribs.

  3. You have been so busy. Love all of your projects, it looks like you are learning so much from your course.

  4. Those waffle rib swatches immediately took me back to 1980’s leg warmers! 😁

  5. Wow, those ribs are interesting in their differences. What a wonderful store of techniques you will now have at hand.

  6. Who knew you could do so much on a knitting machine?

I measured out my 120" for the warp for my 24" Knitter's Loom by Ashford and began threading!  Of course, there were a few set...
