It’s been well over a year since my last post. Lots of things have happened – we moved (twice), I have a new nephew, and I’ve battled some anxiety and depression. And, yes, some knitting also happened that was not recorded here or on ravelry. I apologize for any unanswered questions or messages. But, I’m ready to rejoin the world. 🙂
My latest project is for my teeny little nephew that resides over a thousand miles away. His momma is a rebel and a sweetheart. I couldn’t just give her a sweet baby bear sweater for her new bundle of joy. Nope. Skulls and cross bones are in order.
I’m aiming for a size 12 months. If you’d like to follow along, I cast on 176 stitches in a contrasting yarn (fingering weight) using a size 1 circular needle. Rib in K2, P2 for an 1 1/2 inches or so. K around while decreasing (k2tog) every 10 stitches to reduce to 160 sts total. Begin chart using black and white yarn.
Update: And just for fun, a video of my color stranded knitting technique which was kindly edited by my wonderful daughter. (Thanks babe!)
