you have no idea how i had to contort myself to get this pic
Five inches of knitting at 8 spi doesn’t go very quickly. But I finally got to the Roositud tonight! I’m only a few rows in but I’m really enjoying it. You don’t ever knit with the contrast colors — you’re just weave them in and out. How you deal with the yarn being at the left at the end of the patterned area is really ingenious! I continue to be wowed by the creative problem solving of knitters of yesteryear.
In case you can’t tell, here are the 3 colors of Baby Ull that I’m using. Click on the right pic for a bigger view of the first few rows of Roositud (and disregard the stubble…Paul’s in Seattle this week so I got a little lazy!). I still need to work on the tension a bit but I’m pretty happy with this for my first go at it.
I’ll try to get some step-by-step roositud pics this weekend when I’m knitting during daylight hours.
