Knooking Swatch

I have been on a hunt to find a way to crochet in fair isle. That has lead me to knooking. I can knit - I just like crocheting more.

I really love how this works up. I do need to work on my tension when changing from garter to stocking stitch. I seem to have gaps in my knooking AND knitting.

I think it's time to invest in a set of hooks with extensions. I worked up this swatch with string duct taped to the hook. It worked, but wasn't the smoothest method, I'm sure.

Hello :-)

It's been almost a month since my last post. Woops! Lots of exciting things going on this summer! Since my last post we've made a quick trip to Aspen and visited hubby's family on the way. We also visited the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo for the first time! Lots of fun but I am getting behind on my submissions. I need to get moving!

Next week I have a pattern featured in Knit Picks October catalog! I'm so excited!! I'm not sure which one they picked - it will be a surprise for me, too.

My hoodie is done and now all I have to do is check my pictures and hit send :-) I will post more when I know where it will be for sale!

Now working on a new wrap...stay tuned :-)
