the perfect pattern for everyone of us who is a little bit adhd  Roll Eyes



it was a fun, challenging but still fast, knit and my daughter is really enjoying the result!  essentially, i just worked through different stitches, using a stitch dictionary (because my daughter liked the swatch, where i had tried the yarn out in three different stitches.)  it turned into a fabulous opportunity to try out lots of stitches that looked interesting, but that i haven't yet felt like committing to doing an entire sweater in.  i'm going to try and write up the pattern if i get some time this week, but you don't really need one.  the basic idea is to just stay with a stitch until you're tired of it -- all you have to do is insure you select patterns that take the right number of stitches (and you may want to give a preference to stiches that look good on the wrong side or are reversible and remember to keep a garter stitch border on stockinette based stitches so the edges don't roll).

best of all, it was the perfect one skein project.  i think i'm going to do one for myself in double stranded silk and cashmere yarns.

thanks amor Smiley  we live in alabama, so we can just barely justify scarves.  we are struggling right now with having to send one out of state for school, and the only way i'm coping with it is by thinking it means he's going to need wool sweaters Smiley

i've just had to promise two of my friends i would write up the pattern, so i will post it here, but really, you can tell that what i did was to just keep my stitch dictionary open and pick whatever appealed to me (and had the right number of stitches) and then do it until i got tired of it Smiley  it's the ultimate in soothing knitting projects.  plus, it's a little bit edgey without being over the top.

Very pretty. Knitting is time consuming but rewarding once you finish something.

I do this a lot, too, because I just can't stand knitting the same stitch over and over and over ...  I've taken to calling 'em Sampler Scarves; a great way to practice new stitches and still produce a wearable item.
