Simple, Lovely, Garter Stitch
I started a spring shawlette, Trillian by Marrtina Behm. The majority of the scarf is done in garter stitch. I am really enjoying the simplicity of just knitting. When I first began knitting I scoffed at garter stitch and now, I love it. The yarn really stands out when done in a simple pattern. I also realized that it is important to have a project that requires no thinking or following a pattern on the needles, along with the more complex projects. That way, when the kids are running around, and I am standing at the stove cooking dinner, I can pick this up and knit without having to concentrate. This is knit in SMC select Violena Colori cotton blend. I thought it would be great for a spring wrap. I recommend this pattern for beginning knitters, there are only two rows to repeat through out the project and it is easily memorized. Enjoy your weekend!
