Use ups

Postby darknit » Wed Mar 21, 2018 12:49 pm

Having fun using up some odd balls of wool - it's just garter stitch. Sometimes I use short rows to turn corners sometimes I made squares by knitting three together in the middle of every alternate row, attaching the pieces as I went along. I like the way the diagonals and right angles accentuate the colour changes. The wool is James C Brett Woodlander, very regretfully it is now discontinued, so I will have to find some other complimentary colours to extend it.

I like using spare wool to make blankets.
Shame that wool has been discontinued....I'm sure you can put out a plea and some one will have a spare ball somewhere.
I made a very effective entrelac baby blanket with that wool a few years ago. :)
