On and Off The Needles

This week I am running low on wool but I am pushing on while waiting for supplies to arrive.

Last week I made eight cushion covers without a hitch

Last week I made eight cushion covers without a hitch, this week this kept happening.

A familiar scene to any machine knitter I am sure. The yarn gets tangled and then breaks, half the stitches come off the needles. This is a very grabby yarn which doesn’t do well with ripping back so instead I’ve been sewing up.

I will then felt it and if I am very lucky you might not be able to notice the join, if that doesn’t work, I will have cut around the welt and use it to make a smaller cover.

Off to the washing up bowl for a good soak. I’ll let you know how I get on.
