|RIP First Attempt at Baby Blanket|
I have started the baby blanket....and quickly frogged the three rows I managed to do. It's my first time using the seed stitch and I definitely was not paying attention during one spot because I had several purls in a row.
The seed stitch follows this lovely alchemical formula:
Row 1: Knit 1, *Purl 1, Knit 1. Repeat from * across
Which means there is a lot of yarn carry over and the constant chant of "Knit the purl, purl the knit". And every row starts with a knit. Which is where I goofed on row 2 of my blanket. I definitely purled the first row at some point. Ooops....and then I tried to self-correct which did not go so well, either. However, I can now say with utmost confidence that I will ALWAYS start my seed row with a knit. Lesson learned.
I'm going to be doing the main segment in the seed stitch...so this will probably take me a little while - although it will teach me how to use more than one skein of yarn, so that's exciting. Therefore I might do a post or two on product review and store review (I recently made a trip to the yarn mecca known as Webs, which is aptly known as America's Yarn Store). But, once I get the main portion of the blanket down I will be starting the hard part....so stay tuned for more info!
I noticed I had several new followers! Hi! Did you all find me from Ravelry?
