Hi, my dear readers ♥
Today I want to show you my latest knitting project !
The famous, amazing and easier than it looks Saroyan scarf =)
I decided that I finally have to overcome my fear and start something more complicated with decreasing, increasing and other unknown knitting techniques =D I would probably never believed that I can do this if Han didn´t convince me that it really IS easy and even more with this amazing translation by Rooster Hill with links to all complicated stuff shown on YouTube...
And so I went to Wolle Rödel, picked a really beautiful eco-yarn in natural colour and started...slowly...VERY slowly...twice, because I lost some stitches for the first time...and suddenly O_O omg I made a beautiful leaf and another and another and whoa this is fun and- oh, it´s finished !
What a great pattern ! I totally recommend it to everyone who starts with knitting - it´s easy, fun and the result is beautiful *o*
Only if I made it at the beginning of Autumn instead Summer =D Now I have to wait half a year to wear it ...
I used knitting needles n.6 (I started with rounded, but then I change to normal since it´s not that wide and my rounded needles are 80cm) and 3 skeins of Wolle Rödel Ökowolle
And a photo of one cute guy we met that morning =)
It´s amazing how the consumption of yarn is so much smaller with knitting than with crochet things >_< I always need SO MUCH yarn for my crochet projects and for this one it was just three small skeins *o*
And so I decided that I need more knitting in my life and bought two summer specials of knitting magazines full of amazing patterns *____*
I can´t wait to start !
But first I´ll finish the crochet "patchwork" skirt on which I´m working right now ! It´s almost complete and I´m really looking forward to wear it with some mori girl outfit =)
Have a beautiful day, everyone ♥
