Back To Blogging: On The Needles (1)

Stitches By The Seawater is back after a bit of a break, so I thought I’d begin with current projects. I always have more than one on the go and this is the most recent cast on.

I won the raffle at a knit and natter group this week – 5 small (25g) sample balls of Stylecraft Amor – it’s an Aran weight blend of 40% super wash wool, and 60% acrylic., featuring some lovely variegated colours

The five different colourways in the pack have some colours in common so I reckoned they could all be used in the same project.

I’ve chosen to knit a simple infinity scarf in k2 p2 rib. Hopefully, if I use the colours in the right order, ithey will produce a shaded effect. I’m knitting in the round and cast on 220 stitches with my 5.5mm circular needle.

At the moment it’s quite portable (I always like a small project to carry around) but as it grows this will be the perfect knit and natter project – nothing complicated, no counting of stitches, no charts to follow, no measuring (I’ll just continue until the yarn is all used up), just round and round with the k2p2 rib!
