Therapy Knitting2:12 pm
I like to always have some knitting in progress that I call my therapy knitting. I prefer it to be on two needles, and super simple so I can work it in the dark or on a long car journey when I still need to watch the road to avoid travel sickness.
I've tried therapy knitting with cheap yarn, but it works best for me in nice yarn.
This is my latest piece of therapy knitting. I used four balls of Rowan, Creative Focus Worsted. Three in teal and one in this lovely chartreuse.
I cast on 60 stitches and knitted in stocking stitch until I ran out of yarn, then simply joined each end to make a loop.
I know I've broken lots of knitting rules, knitting a scarf in stocking stitch, but I like the rolling in quality and the right/wrong sides showing, so I don't much care about breaking rules.
I even quite like that my hair clashes with the scarf....not so keen on showing my wrinkles in these photos, but I tell myself to embrace them, they are a luxury denied to those that die young. (still don't like them though!)
