Fibre Friday :: Stripe Study

I cast on for the stripe study on my way to Knit August Nights, so the 23rdish. Luckily it took the plane 3 attempts to land in Napier, so I got extra knitting time. I was a little concerned we were going to have to land in New Plymouth and get a bus, because kitting on a bus makes me motion sick.


Garter stitch, short rows, memorising the pattern two rows in made this a very portable knit. It's also forgiving so if you knit one extra stitch, it doesn't really matter.


I am using my new Silk Merino Luxury yarn- it's a 4ply / fingering weight. And it's beautiful, if I may say so myself.


I cast off last night, so a good firm blocking is in order today, and I'll get back to you with some finished photos.


Happily, you can find both of these colours in the shop, in 4ply weight of course. The pattern uses one ball of each!
