What I want my knitting to be:



This is the prayers shawl from sockyarns I have been stashing. These are my comfort colors. Blue jeans and bandanna reds.
Garter. All garter. Using the square needles, and I've been really comfortable without any tendon pain.

What's easy and doesn't roll?

garter stitch

What's take along anywhere knitting?

garter stitch

What's talk with a friend knitting?

for me, it's garter stitch.

If all I ever knit were garter shawls for a year would you keep coming around?

What's something I can knit after a mind boggling, emotionally wrenching shift?

Garter.

Oh Garter stitch, I love thee.

By nature Im wound up tighter than a drum,

I don't need my knitting to be stressful right now.

Garter is my summer theme.







I'll talk to you in the comments. :)

GO Garter GO! Sounds like a good plan to me. Nothing like unwinding a tightly wound individual than garter stitch (or stockinette if it's in the round) same difference. knit knit knit knit knit - good plan =)

I love the colours of your shawl. I'm glad you've got something to help you unwind. Hope you're feeling better.

I love garter stitch! So relaxing and I think it is really pretty. Sally Melville's book of garter stitch patterns is one of my favorites. Why not be good to yourself and knit garter stitch!

I am sure that it will bring you many warm hours. And as long as you enjoy it, it will be good.
