Warm Rainbow

Finished up the neckwarmer for Youngest Grandson. I'm happy with how it turned out, although all by itself, I think it's a bit large. However, tucked inside a jacket, I think it'll work fine, and should be big enough for next winter, too.
A few days ago, I checked Mosaic Knitting by Barbara G Walker (who has quite a range of interests as an author) out of the library. I finally had a nicely quiet house last night to sit down and learn how to do it. It's slip stitch knitting and is the technique the famous Ballband Dishcloth pattern is based on. It is very simple once you understand it. Here's another tutorial. There are some beautiful samples in Flickr: Triangle Check, T Square, Chevron, Greek Cross, and French Weave. Mosaic Knitting is full of geometric patterns as borders or as complete squares. The back side is definitely a back side, but it's nice and neat. They are basicly st st patterns, so will curl.

Keeping the "We" in "Yes, We Can!"


  1. Your GD is so cute! I love the neck-warmer! I remember when thery were called dickies.

    The mosaic knitting, do you plan on incorporating it into sock knitting? I didn't have too success w/that.

  2. Neck warmer looks great! Quick knitting gratification, they are!!!


I really am glad you're commenting. Please make sure I can find you by insuring you leave an e-mail address. It's so frustrating to have someone ask a question and no way to answer them! Thanks!
