knitted for the table


I've been meaning to sew but have only had the energy and ability to knit the past few days. Knitting is more relaxing for me. For some reason when I am knitting, I feel guilty that I'm not sewing plus my head is always so botched up with so many project ideas. I literally have to tell myself... it's okay you don't have to do it all right now. There are plenty of more days ahead.
Anyway, here is the beginnings of handknit placemats. I thought this up and I didn't have to really draft a pattern or anything. It's got garter stitch edging and then it's just regular stockinette stitch. The yarn is from The Fiber Co. and the color is called Sea Green. It is the Organik line which is comprised of 70% Organic NZ Wool, 15% Baby Alpaca and 15% Silk. It is my first time using this yarn and I really like it.

Tonight is my first night at Mackey Blue. If you are local, stop by and say 'hi'

I'm the same!!! When I knit I feel guilty, like I should be sewing, anyway. I can't wait to see what your placemats look like, what a great idea to knit them! The wool that you are using sounds devine.
Keep up the good work
