sixty four stitches

The first post is the lamest, baby I know

So. I know that the first post in any blog that I’ve ever started seems to be pretty lame. But with this one, I figured it’s best to get off on the right foot and start posting pictures straight away. I’ve nearly finished knitting the Big Bad Baby Blanket from the first Stitch n Bitch book, I am using RYC Luxury Cotton DK in Sunflower. I love this yarn, I’ve bought more of it in a light grey colour and I’ll probably use it for a shawl or maybe even a light cardigan. Anyway, onto the picture (I’ve not had the chance to take a good picture of the size of it, but I’ll get one when it’s finished).

The colour is washed out a bit, but I think you kind of get the idea. NEXT! Is a feather and fan shawl, and I’m using some lovely bright green Artesano 100% Alpaca 4ply. The photo doesn’t show the colour accurately at all. Mostly because I took the photo when it was pretty dark and the flash has washed it out. But as an added bonus, you get to see the pieceĀ of paper I’m counting my stitches on!

I’ve also got some black Rowan Calmer I’m hoping to knit a jumper with, but that’s a bit further down the queue. And I need to find a pattern. Not so lame a first post after all!
