2016 in review

So friends, another year's over, and while 2016 was a bit gloomy I actually had a blast. It was so full of adventure and achievement, because after years and years of scheming, I finally got this little creative venture of mine off the ground!

Here are the knitting-related things I'm most proud of:
  • I opened my Etsy shop.
  • I published my first knitting pattern.
  • I pivoted my Instagram account to focus on my knitting.
  • Patterns published: 7
  • Items sold on Etsy: 20
  • Finished items that other people have made from my patterns (that I know of): 8
  • Number of people I taught how to knit: 22

Diagonal Stripe Scarf

I love cables, but have been wanting to play with creating texture and patterns with simple knit and purl stitches for a while. After making a bunch of Seed Stitch Scarves I figured giving a different textured scarf a shot would be fun. As it turns out, diagonal ribbing is fairly straightforward but looks amazing. The yarn is nice and chunky and warm so it's a pretty quick knit, and if you can't decide between the regular and infinity version, well, why not try both? ;)
