Simple, Lovely, Garter Stitch

Posted on

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!

    I’m learning that it’s nice to have one ‘intense’ project mixed with a more simple style. Especially since I have so much to learn!

    I usually have two projects going. One that requires more concentration and one easy knit that I can pick up while visiting with someone or watching an intriguing TV show or movie. I think they both have their place!

    I, too, like having a more complex project and a more simple project going at the same time. I also like to have them in different weights/needle size. I find it sort of refreshes my hands – as well as my brain – to switch back and forth.

    Your shawl looks lovely! Hope we get to see finished photos, too.
