I was just wondering because as much as I HATE seaming I to this day would rather make two-needle mittens than even consider knitting them in the round. I guess I need some motivation to try something new. I don’t seem to have a problem when it comes to other projects, just mittens.
I LOVE knitting in the round…it’s fun! Perhaps if you try your mittens using 2 circs instead of dpns?! Or…a new, fun, mitten pattern?! Or…new, fun mitten yarn…there ya go
I hate seaming too, but I also like flat knitting. But if I seam as I go along and don’t hold the whole thing off till the end it’s not that bad. (At least that’s what I keep telling myself :roflhard: ) Just like sewing…I don’t mind doing the actual sewing, but hate hate hate cutting out the pattern, marking the darts etc.[/b]
Knitting in the round is wonderful!
It’s not difficult, and best of all, if you’re working in stockinette, NO PURLING!
I’m in one right now but its not knitting flat… although I do not like seams and avoid if possible but I’m in scarf rut!! LOL
I think you should give the dpns a try I made some mittens last weekend very fast and no seaming!! :cheering:
