That One Thing About Stockinette Stitch…

This new WIP is basically a very simple cardigan with stockinette (or stocking) stitch. I like stockinette stitch, because it is something that I could do while watching telly. You don’t need to keep looking at your work, as you do not need to keep counting stitches to keep a lace or cable pattern.

But that’s also the problem with stockinette stitch. As it could be quite mindless, it could get a bit boring before the shaping (neck or sleeves) needs to be done. And, I have to say, that I am on that bit of the project now…

Oh well…

But… looking at the positive side. The wool is very very soft. And since it is a 4ply instead of a DK –that I usually use, it is also much lighter and I think it would be mor suitable for my sister in Indonesia where it is much warmer than here in the UK.

I bought the wool when they were on sale on my local Hobbycraft. They were £10 for 10 balls — which I think is a huge bargain, especially for this brand and quality. But it was about two years ago, I wonder if they would do it again this year?

So much for new year wish?

  1. Hey, Hobbycraft has this sale again. They had some lovely skeins to choose from when I was there yesterday. John Lewis also brought out huge baskets with reduced yarn if you were interested.

    • No waay! Will have to drag hubby there before the sale is gone. I thought they have this sale closer to summertime (when it was too hot to knit) lol. Thank you for the info, Rudylisky ❤

  2. I love how it is turning out, I forget who you are making it for but I’m sure they will love it. I understand what you mean about getting bored with all the mindlessness of the stitches. I feel that way about my blanket that I am knitting and still do since I’ve been working on it for five years and it’s not done. But then again I haven’t worked on it in about a year.

    • It’s for my baby sister. Yeah, I thought of making a blanket too, but i don’t think I can commit on making something that big yet. I mean, throw and sofa blanket is fine, but a proper double size blanket… maybe next year lol x
