I'm heading out on a vacation. I won't be anywhere near a sewing machine and our cruise has a few sea days. It took me days to find and choose just the right project to work on, just in case I have a little downtime. It's pretty simple, yet has a lovely detail stitch. It's lightweight yarn, so easy to bundle up..
It's a cowl called That Nice Stitch, and is available here on Ravelry. It will be a narrow scarf with two loops around your neck. It has the nicest look to it. I'm knitting it out of sock yarn because I don't like anything to heavy around my neck.
I thought I'd better start the pattern in case I have a problem. I'm glad, because I didn't remember how to do a provisional cast on, so a 2 minute video on youtube refreshed my memory. Easy peasy. I have my cast on done, and two inches of the pattern knit now. So it's easy to pick up and continue if I get the urge to knit.. It will be 48" when I'm done.
It's now all tucked in my little drawstring pouch. I made a few of these little pouches last December and shared the free pattern here.
I'll report back in a few weeks when I'm back at the computer, as to how much down time I had to knit.
I'll not be blogging in the meantime, unless I run into a quilt show or something while away!!
