face the facts
When it comes to basic knitting, it it basically monotonous and boring. I demonstrated the knit stitch for my 7-year-old granddaughter and her comment was :"Is that it?" And yes, that´s it. But I am addicted to the element of surprise.
My knitting is almost hibernating these days. My right shoulder needs a rest. To avoid with-drawal symptoms I turned towards Baktus, and got hold of these two skeins, Fabel and Alpaca, from Drops. The colors are so toned down and I thought it would help me from the "just one more row"-syndrome. And help me take care of my arm.
But the scarf turned out much more sprightly than I had imagined. I almost like it.
I am now testing an I-cord edging. Can´t decide which side of the cord I prefer.
I have caught the Baktus bacterial, and is continuously visualizing how all kinds of leftovers and single skeins shall turn into nice scarves. I have borrowed my neighbour´s digital scales. A must for a Baktus-Knitter. On top is a gem. Quivit. 51 grams=200m
