Slightly Purling Bandana

(c) 2013 Matthew Richey

This clever bandana uses knitting on the WS to create the purl ridges. Therefore you only need to purl to maintain the stockinette sections! Use a closing shawl pin or sew on a button & loop closure to secure.

The Lonely Tank Top and The Growing Scarf

My paint box scarf is getting longer and I realized something…the two skeins of yarn are not exactly the same colorways…but, I LOVE that! The scarf seems to be growing a mile a minute even though they are knitted on size 6 needles. 🙂

This is a tank top that I knitted a while ago, but, I’ve been having some trouble with it. More specifically the straps. Apparently cotton stretches. A lot. As in several inches. So, it is sitting lonely and unloved until I make the new straps.

This is a picture of the tank top sideways because I can’t figure out how to turn it around. 😦
Also, this picture is closer to the real color of my tank top.
