Day 15: More Knitting

photo (16)

 

Today was another knitting day. Instead of starting anything new (or coming up with anything in particular to make with that loopy yarn), I decided to pull one out of the unfinished project pile. This is just a simple scarf being worked on an I-sized Knook (the crochet hook for knitting with- a great thing for someone who wants to knit but is better at crochet, like me; I highly, highly recommend it to crocheters, even if you don’t want to knit, the three hook kit is a really great price for three decent quality wooden crochet hooks). Unfortunately, like anything done with smaller tools, this is a very slow process. The paperclip marks where I started working on this. A few hours’ work produced 28 rows, or 700 stitches. That amounts to about 3 inches of cloth and no visible difference in the skein I was planning on exhausting for this project.

I will finish this eventually. #why-do-i-do-this-to-myself?

  1. I crochet but don’t know how to knit. Will I be able to figure out how to use the Knook? I’ve seen them in stores and shied away.

      The little booklet the comes with the starter kit has pretty good instructions, with photos for each step of the process, for both left- and right-handed users. The biggest issue I have had is remembering to yarn over the other direction. I did learn to knit (a little) first, before I even learned to crochet, but I had not done it in a long time and had to use the instructions to figure out what I was doing. I found them pretty easy to use and to follow. I would say you should really have no issues learning to knit with a knook if you already know how to crochet. And, like I said earlier, even if you decide you don’t care for using them to knit, it is a set of three decent quality wooden hooks for a pretty good price (I thought). They are definitely worth trying out.
