Now onto CONTEST STUFF
TUESDAY is TRY a NEW STITCH DAY
I fell asleep last night and forgot to do my own swatch so this picture if from the stitch directory
It's called Granite Relief Sitch
Granite Relief Sitch (multiple of 2 sts)
Note: the instructions are a generic pattern for creating this stitch pattern. For a single repeat, you'd only need two stitches (but you'd have a VERY narrow piece!) In the example shown, there are eighteen repeats of the stitch, so to make a swatch that looked the same, you need to cast on 36 stitches (16 x the 2 multiple.)
Row 1 (RS) Knit.
Row 2 K2tog across row.
Row 3 K into the front and back of each st.
Row 4 Purl.
Rep rows 1-4.
So are you game? Want to give this new stitch a try? perhaps you already know this stitch, so tell us what have you made with it? Post your thoughts in the comment section to receive another entry in this weeks contest for the Knitters Gadget Jackpot. As you all know you don;t have to try the stitch to get an entry all you need to do is leave a comment, OK?
I came across an interesting idea when I was blog reading this morning... Knitting Badges
These are just a couple of them... it's kind of funny and I bet like me you probably have earned a few of the badges yourself. Go check it out if you have a chance.
Guess that's it for me... I am off to attempt to knit those socks from the sock blank today... I hope.
