I am the founding member of the Anchorage Stitch N Bitch – The Late Bloomer’s Society, and it’s pretty awesome. We get together at various locations around town (though usually my own storefront, because then I will surely make the gathering), and work on current projects, sip vino, eat snacks, and usually talk a little smack. It’s pretty therapeutic and awesome to hang around such crafty, sassy company. I seem to be production knitting these days (but awaiting my chance to make another baby blanket for someone special), and I’ve been cranking out striped scarves. It started with Harry Potter and went from there.
- Cast 40 stitches onto a round 6 mm needle
- Purl in the round until you reach desired stripe width and switch colors
- To avoid that color ‘hop’ when switching colors, slip the first previous color stitch over the next needle without purling after you have stitched the first round
- Continue until desired length, turn inside out, finish with tassels
