Day 4 brought some creativity.
I had 2 requirements – garter stitch (I love how it looks with a gradient yarn), and a sunburst shape. I couldn’t find anything that fit so I made something up. I’m still not sure what I want to do with the edge but I have a ways to go. The pic above shows 3 of the 15 colors in the paint box.
All those mini skeins do have a downfall though – lots of ball winding. Cute little mini balls.
But it doesn’t mean lots of weaving in of ends! Enter the Double Knot – or Magic Knot. I found this on the Fiber Optics blog and it really does work! I’ve woven in exactly zero ends so far. Can you spot the knots? I can’t. Watch the video. I can’t believe I’d never heard of this technique before.
I’ll catch you on the purl side.
