Industriousness: WIP Wednesday

Posted on Apr 25, 2012 in Crafts | 0 comments

I did a lot of knitting and crocheting last weekend, what with the poor-man’s retreat and all the quiet in my house.

Rae is turning out to be a delightfully mindless knit, especially since I finally figured out how to tell if I’m about to start an increase row (there’s one every fourth row of garter stitch and the thought of moving a marker every four rows gives me hives). Here’s how to spot the kfb on the wrong side of the fabric if you, too, want Rae to be as simple as possible: It looks kinda like a V. If there’s a plain-old garter ridge above one of those Vs, the next row is an increase row.

I've circled the increase. Can you spot one on every second garter ridge?

As for Land & Sea, look at all that land!
