Trial and Error

I have a bunch of posts stored up to describe all the neat things I got and did at Stitches West, but I also want to talk about what I’m doing, so there will probably be a few double-posting days.

Last night I played with some new yarn I got at the Market. It’s a microfiber ribbon yarn from Tess’ Designer Yarns. It was a total pain to wind into a ball because it’s very slippery. Despite that, it wasn’t too challenging to knit with. However, I had visions of some sort of elongated stitch and the yarn wasn’t cooperating with that.

After an hour or so of fighting with the yarn, I managed to make this:

The loops at the top are the elongated stitches I’d made, before giving up on making another row of crosses and ripping the whole thing off the needles. The stitches in stockinette look really lovely. But I want something a little more exciting than that. So I’ll let it sit for while and ruminate.
