Ten stitch blanket

Ten stitch blanketWendy has got her ten stitch blanket up and running. One by one we are all coming around to it and all finding our way to do it. It is interesting how much a voyage of discover the ten stitch blanket is. Karin started us off last year with a workshop showing us the German short rows with wraps. Alexis brought along a blanket without the wraps so we could see that. Some got up and running and others were finding their way and some are still pondering the wonders of the ten stitch blanket. We like it because they are cosy and use up oddments. Once you master the techniques involved it ends up being an easy knit. You have to do it your own way and in your own time is what we have discovered. Wendy has been able to use her new needles from Equipment Day and she is loving it. Sometimes you have to try it and then unpick it and try something else. You cannot get going until you are happy.

Wendy found the Nervous Knitter to be very helpful and it was that which got her truly going with her blanket. The Nervous Knitter has a good YouTube channel and then a really nice  WordPress  blog.
