Sometimes, it’s good that I have more bravery than brains, lol.
I’m teaching myself to do stranded knitting. It’s always been my motto to myself and sometimes my children that, “if you can read you can do”.
WIP( what’s in progress), is the Scott Cardigan from Rowan.
( Classic Winter book number 6).
A zip up cardigan in a fairisle design.
This was hard, much harder than my motto ! Not only learning stranding but, I found that I needed a “set up”. First came the inexpensive tray table to hold my “stuff” markers, sticky notes, ruler, crochet hook, pencil, scissors, pattern .
I made myself a little nesting area and realized quickly (although I enlarged the chart) it was very hard to see it well . Adding an ott light with magnifer now was added to the set up . I finally began to knit , yay !
As I went along, the lamp slowly started sliding down one side of the table .
This is my first lesson in stranding, if I can read it, I better read it several times and having been a former girl scout, be prepared , lol !
By the way, new motto : It takes a lot of $&#t to knit 😂
