Bear head one and bear head two. #crochet #wip
Decided to add up my hours and it came out to exactly 20 so I thought it deserved a HP screenshot.
A screen shot with my minimal progress here, which equals about 1/15th of the scarf. :( And that’s about six and a half hours already, folks. FOREVER. It’s going to take forever…
Step 2! #CurrentlyOnMyNails
Also on the recently unabandoned sd card was my deep-breath-here-we-go harry potter scarf beginning!
Okay, here’s my color change. I basically used the same technique as I do with crocheting by finishing the last stitch with the next color. I think it’ll work all right…
A very messy color change, this.
Anybody know of a good tutorial that shows the best way to change color with EVEN striping, like on the other side?
Okay, here’s how I did with the oopsies! Not terrible - I didn’t have to start all over anyway. :)
Now to tackle changing colors…
Swatch #3.5 - I had an unfixable oopsie (for me) about four rows in, so I just started over. My stitches are still a little wonky, presumably because my tension isn’t suitably consistent (yet), but this is definitely progress! I do believe I’ve also figured out how to do the slip-the-first-stitch edging that’s had me buffaloed thus far. Next up? Tackling fixing those terrifying little oopsies like dropped stitches and pulling the whole dadgum needle out by accident like I did on that second swatch when things got crazy… Wish me luck. :(
So this hot little mess is my first attempt at relearning how to knit (again)! Clearly, I had some trouble getting started - we’ll see how I do on the next swatch…
