I’m sure that I’ve knitted things which have taken longer – but the Nut-Hap by Jen Arnall-Culliford feels like the slowest thing I’ve ever knitted.
Combining a tubular cast on with almost 700 stitches and rows of 1×1 rib. Lovely, reflective knitting. But it felt that my knitting wasn’t really growing.
Then on to the tucks – I’ve done two of the four with 3 colours in each row, and in comparison to the ribbed section, these rows feel like they fly by.
I’m very much looking forward to having this finished as I think it’s a shawl I’ll wear lots. And if you ever hear me suggesting I might like to make another one of these? Remind me how I feel about knitting rib.
