Sampler blanket

Blankets

After the flurry of activity last week, I’m sort of having a break. Am working a couple of squares for the blanket, playing with deliberately dropped stitches and crossed stitches.

Have also started teaching myself to knit left-handed with another square. It is quite tricky at first to work out how to achieve the same effect as a right-handed knit or purl stitch. As for holding the yarn in my left hand – forget it! I find it much easier to knit left handed continental style, using my right hand to control the yarn. (I knit right handed ‘english’ style.)
