That’s what I’ve been doing with my crafting lately. I wanted to get more practice with double knitting, especially in terms of remembering what color to work with at a given time. So I figured I’d try to do stripes. At first I did single row stripes but it started to make me dizzy so I switched up to double row. A few triple rows slipped in there but I was having too much fun to stop.
Double knitting allows me to spend more time using both my hands without it being traditional colorwork. What’s funny is, when I first started knitting, I couldn’t purl with my left hand like I can now; I had to switch the yarn to my right hand to purl. Now, I can’t purl with my right hand to save my life! If I do, the stitch is facing the ‘wrong’ way and I have to work into the back of it to get it to lay right on the next go-round. I find that a bit too fiddly for my taste. I did a few more hot pads and got to use them today.
I decided to experiment some more with my baking too. I wanted to know if I could incorporate ham and cheese into the sweet rolls. So far, it worked!
I simply divided the dough in half and layered ham and cheese on the dough, then rolled it right up. I think next time though, I’ll roll the dough a tad thinner. I have a feeling the middle didn’t bake well on one of them, but reheating for breakfast should solve that.
The weekend is not over yet, and I’m hoping I get to experiment with some fabric too. Lil Beanlet needs belts like no tomorrow. I think it’s time I got my sewing machine in gear and get ‘er done! 😉
That’s all for now. See ya soon! Happy Crafting!
