Knit Something of the Month Club - January

Happy New Year!

This is the first project in my Knit Something of the Month Club (is it really a club since it's just me?) It's the one I added after I showed you all the yarns and the one I took a sock yarn out of the club for. It's Hawthorne from Twist Collective. I'm using Knit Picks Andean Silk yarn in cream (yes, cream again). I've had seven skeins sitting in my stash for years and I decided it would be perfect for this scarf/shawlette. I'm not usually one to use lots of markers because I prefer to just read the stitches, but on this project I decided to use them. The mint and peach markers around the outside edge mark the center stitch of each repeat and then I've got markers on the needles that separate each repeat. There are a lot of stitches in this project and the repeats are large. The charts aren't hard to follow, but each row is different so I'm not really memorizing this. When I realized all of this, I also realized that if I made a mistake there would be a huge amount of tinking, so using lots of markers seemed like a good idea. At this point I'm a little past the 1/3 mark of the lace section.

Really pretty. Cream is very nice and dramatic because few people are brave enough to use it.

Pretty! And, since you say the pattern repeats are long and each row is different, may I recommend occasional lifelines? They have saved my behind on several occasions. That's going to be some gorgeous knitting!

Oh I think, it is a club. You and all your readers... and maybe some of them had been inspired and startet their own thing.

Have a nice weekend
Best regards, Bianca
