Why not? Because this is what I do when I’m bored:
I engineerd a stand for my cone of Colourmart so it can unwind freely.
I had a couple of K’nex kits from who-knows-when and I thought I could try to get something a bit Heath Robinson out of it. I was right!
It’s a bit unstable but it does the job (as long as I don’t try and unwind the yarn too quickly).
I needed some TV/brainless knitting so I cast on a scarf for myself:
Right: without flash, Left: with flash (light levels are still rubbish around here!)
The pattern is more-or-less Brooklyn Tweed’s Noro Striped Scarf only it’s not Noro yarn (I’m using Gedifra Fashion Stripe) and I cast of fewer stitches because it’s a heavier yarn.
I cast on with waste yarn so that both ends can be cast off using the Sewn method and will therefore match. I know. Where’s Amy and what have you done with her? One thing about my knitting ability is the fact I can never match my cast offs and ons. I tend to cast off too tightly with anything other than the sewn method and my cast on is usually too loose! Problem solved; cast off both ends!
Apart from that, it’s just the same!
