Knitterly Content

I have been knitting. I made a "knitcushion"

with scraps of Noro Kureyon and the #8 needles you see there. I'm finding it very useful, what with needing access to my cable needle, plus crochet hook and double points for spontaneous surgery.

This is 4 rows unraveled to correct a couple of moves in the wrong direction. Since it was all stockinette and only involved one error, this was a pretty easy maneuver.

Here's the progression of my vest:

First, I used stitch markers to divide the pattern panels until I had enough knitting to be able to see my 4-stitch separators. Then I added the little tags with the patterns used in each position, again until I could see enough of the patterns to identify them.

First, the stitch markers went.

And finally I was able to remove the ID tags.

Hi Sandra,

I enjoyed reading about your Aran class. Thanks for sharing. Glad you liked it and it looks like you are off to a good start with your sweater. Now you have to keep it going...

Looks like the 'knitcushion' is very useful and what a great way to use up scraps.

Wow, that is going to be a neat sweater! Also love the knitcushion, very pretty with the colors and also useful. Did you use a pattern to make it?
