Yarn Along: Re-do

{Yarning Along with Ginny}

Tour de Fleece finished this past Sunday, so I've reclaimed a little bit of my knitting time. I'm still trying to decide what to make with the yarn I made during the tour. It's about 300 yards of a light fingering weight that is a little uneven. I'm open to suggestions!

I made it the tiniest bit into the beginning of my Doctor Who Kernel the other day while waiting for my boys- all of 5 rows I believe. I'll really be able to get going on it as soon as Ellie's Stripey Cardigan is complete. 

And speaking of the cardigan... I have redone the edge of this cardigan 3 times. I did it without thinking the first time and kept it stockinette. As soon as I bound off I realized what I'd done and how the curling would never go away, so I immediately ripped it back and went with garter stitch. That didn't look quite right either so I went back and did a 1x1 ribbing. It's still not right, but I'm not settled on what to do so I decided to leave it for now and move on to the sleeves while I think on that bottom edge. 

I'm still reading Ready Player One in little bits when I get some time, but most of my attention is going to The Spinner's Book of Yarn Designs by Sarah Anderson while I figure out some spinning technique.


  1. I love the way a 2 x 1 ribbing looks. :)

  2. I like the ribbing. The stockinette would never had worked :-(

    I didn't spin as much as I would have liked in TDF but it got me back into the spinning groove so I see some some finished yarn in my future!

  3. I like the ribbing too. What a cute cardi!

  4. Love it! the ribbing is great... passed on your post with book on spinning to a friend who is learning! have a great day!!

  5. I like the look of the ribbing. Best of luck in finding one that pleases you, hope you won't have to rip it out too many times again.

  6. Well...I like the ribbing as well. Have you thought of a two color stripe ribbing...just to throw something different in.
    I am just peeking in on everyones progress this Wednesday. I should be working on my Grocery bag rug...yes frugal me is knitting with plastic bags.
    Keep on Knitting.

  7. threes a charm! glad you are happy with the edging. With your homespun, how about a cowl??? Can't think of one but I'm sure a ravelry search would give you some ideas :)
