I’m a new knitter. I did a basketweave scarf in a very loose wool blend, and now I’m doing a toddler cardigan using Sugar N Cream cotton (I know lots of people only use that for dishcloths, but I love cotton and found a great multicolored one so I don’t have to keep switching yarn colors). The pattern is free from the Lion Brand website, Bubblegum Baby Set. The sweater is obviously not big, but is knit all in one piece.
My issue is, how the heck do I keep my knitting staying nice-looking? I’ve been working on this sweater a few weeks (I don’t have a lot of free time), and I’m getting there, but now the first stitches look like someone has already worn it 30 times. How do I keep this from happening? I’ve considered laying some sort of plastic on my lap to keep it from rubbing against my clothing, and maybe I should store it in something other than a cloth bag…?
