My knitting skills are best described as rustic. No Aran sweaters, no Fair Isle, no sweaters at all. Knitting is a form of meditation for me so I knit simple things. My winter project stretched into spring but I've completed this blanket throw just in time for summer!
It's randomly created stripes of colour in 100% wool Roving. The ivory colour was particularly prone to random breakage so whenever it broke I would just change colours. No fancy stitches involved, as that would impede the meditative process. I used large circular needles without knitting in the round and just changed colours whenever I felt like it or ran out.
My current project is a fine alpaca shawl in bands of neutral fawn, beige and grey. I'm aiming to complete it in time to take on a flight to Nova Scotia this summer. And after that I'm considering knitting or crocheting two placemats. I don't have any at the moment and I am in need of two. Sewing them is also a possibility. For five minutes-no probably two minutes-I considered weaving some. Hah!
