Waffle Stitch



I was watching the Rosemary and Thyme mystery series on PBS and Thyme was wearing a really cool multi-colored scarf in a stitch I didn't even recognize. So I used that as an inspiration for a scarf that uses a waffle stitch. Right now it has tons of ends I have to weave in, but I want to post a photo of it anyway. For one thing, beginners need to see that knitting can look pretty unruly until you tidy it up at the end. It is so much easier to make big things with one or two colors, but I guess I'm just not wired that way. I must have Kaffee Fassette DNA because I'm happiest when a project has a plethora of colors.

I try to weave in all my ends the last few minutes I knit each time...It saves yourself a ton of aggrivation in the end when you are soooo close to done and have a million ends to weave in!

BTW, I'm on the pagan knitting blog ring and found your blog! It's nice to meet you!
