I’m a new knitter - about 3 months now. I’ve knit dishcloths and found a pattern I may extend into a placemat. But I’m tired of cotton.
So. I used my discount coupons and bought up a whole lot of pretty colors in Lion Brand Heartland: blue, purple, green, gold, red and brown. I like that it’s a soft yarn and the colors sort of “shimmer” and have a bit of “tweed” to them.
I’m making a blue basket weave scarf/hat/wrist warmer set; a red ribbed set; a gold set with reversible ridges instead of ribs; a purple set in a diamond pattern; and may teach myself cable on the green yarn set…
Then, with the leftover yarn, I may make a lap blanket in stripes or a larger afghan in blocks of color.
I’m excited about all the variety available to me in stitch designs, and soon my knitting will be even and consistent and I’ll want to start a sweater or vest.
Pictures will follow when I have more than 2 rows on the needles - lol!
