Breaking New Ground

First literally- as in establishing another planting bed. Plan is to use this space for potatoes and squash this year-

Managed to lift and move most of the sod to other spots around the property, and now it’s onwards to amending the soil! I’ve got a good-sized pile of compost standing by and ready to go.

But also figuratively- in that I tried a new-to-me knitting thing this week. Double Knitting.

It’s been a while since I tried a new knitting technique, and a couple of things I watched on YouTube recently inspired me to give it a shot. (Inspiration references: Sockmatician pocast and Fruity Knitting w/ Alasdair Post-Quinn )

Amazing, mind-bending stitch structures and projects. Got me thinking about just how much there is to know.

So I decided to give it a shot. Just a simple swatch.

Nothing fancy. But it worked! And it makes this really lovely cushy fabric.

So now I need to figure out how to do it using my usual purl technique (norwegian purl). Might need a yarn guide or something.

So many colorwork possibilities-

      Thanks Donna- only time will tell if the double knitting bug will really take hold. It’s super cool, but rather slow-going….
