The Cat Knits...

A singular forum to discuss knitting as craft, therapy, and way of life (with or without the benefit of cats).

Hounds tooth

Well, wrist is much better despite the fact that I've been cheating a little on the rest part of the cure. It's awfully hard to sit idly on the couch and simply watch the TV. After all, my continuing New Years' resolution is to knit down my stash AND my niece gave me a goodly supply of Lion Homespun yarn for Christmas. With so much yarn, I wanted to knit something other than simple scarves with it. How about a wrap in a hounds tooth pattern? Yes. Using two skeins will produce a reasonably large, cuddly rectangle.
