The beauty of garter stitch

garterwrapI’ve been enjoying doing some pretty simple knitting, lately, maybe because real life (translation: taxes, work, commuting) feels so frantic. When I needed to jump start my enthusiasm for spring in February, I knit this pretty simple neck wrap. Just a simple v (with increases on each side from the 3 original cast on stitches, some rows with yarn overs), and then followed by a scalloped edging in crochet. Ravelry link here to the project.

I hadn’t expected it to photograph quite so well. The Zitron Trekking sock yarn has nice color repeats, and both this and the tiny sweeter I did earlier in the year ended up being lovely.
