So I have decided I need to practice my stocking stitch and was thinking about a pattern that would be easy and repetitive and came up with a cushion. I didn't have an actual pattern to work from I just figured I'd make it up. So I cast on 100 stitches on size 6 mm needles and started knitting. This was when I learnt my first lesson - check what the recommended size needle is for the yarn you are using! (I decided to use the lovely lemon baby yarn I had left over from the baby bootees, so that it would lovely and soft) So I undid what I had knitted and cast on 80 stitches on size 4 mm needles. It was looking good but I thought it was looking a bit bigger than I had wanted, so guess what... I undid it again! Finally, I cast on 60 stitches and got knitting. This is what it looks like now
As you can probably see I have dropped a stitch and had to unpick a row and didn't quite fix it, but after already undoing it twice I simply refused to undo again and have decided this shall be the back and who will see it anyway!
Hoping to have this finished soon, although probably not in time for Friday as I have the in laws staying!
