Snitting Knitting WIP | Scrap Awareness Month: July 2015

Scrap Awareness Month: Take stock. Take scraps. Take Victory.

knitting WIP SAMHere is my quick update on the snitted, scrap knitted,  blanket. It is so fun to make! I think it’s always nice to get away from the smaller knitting needles, and have a fun, hand-cramp-free break with some bigger ones. And it works so quickly. I’m not used to this since I have got a jumper being made on 4mm, which is not too awful, and a red sock on 2.75mm, yes… awful! While I definitely have an eye for those “finer” knits, chunky knits have a space in my heart for those times when you just want to knit, not count stitches!

You might be able to see there that I have some un-crocheted yarn in the midst of the tangled pile – this is because it is big wool, so there isn’t any need! I just tie off the crochet yarn that I will knot it to, and after tying together I proceed as normal.

For those who have not heard of snitting, please check out my early post, where I write about things I have made up. Like Scrap Awareness Month. And snitting. Which is basically knitting with scraps!

    1. Hi there! That HP blanket looks fun, I guess she is tying the yarn together as I am doing too, it looks that way. I am using 10mm needles and a 7mm crochet hook and most of the yarn is four-ply worsted. I was really scared I would hate the colours as I was doing it randomly, but I have to say it’s turned out to be a lovely surprise! I truly recommend trying it out!

      1. I looks fab 🙂 I brought myself a pair of long 10mm needles a while back 🙂 This project might be good for their first outting.

        I agree – your colour combo looks awesome! 🙂
