I couldn’t really sleep, so I have thus far spent my waking hours with my new toy….
I even learned a different technique to make the center. There are several videos for various kinds of centers at knitting-and.com and they are all reasonably simple. This one is called a back stitch center. I did two rounds…
Emma and I are probably going to make more of these…would like to make a small throw. We’ll see! In the meantime, I have started a knitting project and it is one of my least favorite techniques…colorwork. But, since this one is a simple slip stitch technique, in only two colors, it isn’t so bad.
Of course, this can be done in other colors, but, imho, black and white are the most elegant.
