Hello everyone out there in blog-land,
As my profile says, I’m still fairly new to knitting but I thought I would post a picture of my most recently completed project. It’s a cat hat for a friend's baby who is expected to be born any day now! I handed over the gift this afternoon and was pleased and surprised with my friend’s positive response.
I got the pattern from a book I found at our local library but the math seemed off to me. They told me that starting with 72 sts, *K6, SKP; rep from * to end – 63 sts. I followed this and ended up with leftover sts at the end of the row so I backstitched and tried again (twice). This caused me to look at their math and as I saw it, 72 sts to start minus the end result of 63 sts, means 9 decreases per row. 72 sts
I’d appreciate any comments but please be gentle as I bruise easily… Now back to continuing with my cable-knit throw. Oy I had no idea how unruly this throw would become. A 25 ball project, what was I thinking? But it’s kind of nice to work on during the cold, damp, rainy days we’ve had this summer.
