I should also call this post, making peace with Garter.
A small miraculous thing happened. I knit this shawlette in Noro’s cotton blend and it feels perfect next to my skin. I also, knit the whole thing in garter.
Garter and I usually fight. We fight hard. We go to our rooms and pout. What is the easiest stitch for some, is usually a hot mess for me. I get too lazy while knitting garter and I drop stitches. Mindless is as mindless does?
This was knitted almost entirely in the car, between teddy bear knits. I needed a travel knit. I would actually try NOT to think of how I was succeeding with this garter knit while I was knitting it.
(shawl was : cast on 20 . then for each row knit 2, in next stitch (only) knit in front and back,
to the last 3 stitches. On third to last stitch knit in front and back. Every row. )
