Stripes on Stripes

It's been a while since I posted about progress on my October Affection.  I'm still plugging away, with no real rush to finish. I'm taking my time and enjoying each row and color change, trying to appreciate the way each color compliments the others. I work a few rows most mornings, which is such a nice way to mentally relax before heading in to work.

There's something so soothing to me about garter stitch. I think I've talked about it on the blog before. It's just nice to have a project where there's not a whole lot of thought involved, which still produces an interesting finished project. 

And, the short rows. I have a weird affinity for short rows. They're so simple, yet they can add so much visual interest to a project.

So, while it may not be October anymore, I'm still knitting away on my October Affection, stripe by stripe.

    I'm feeling relaxed just by looking at this project. It's so nice to have one project which is just about seeing it evolve and enjoying the process, without feeling pressured or stresed about it.

    I love garter stitch too. It is very relaxing to knit, and it's so timeless.
