Since everyone's doing it I decided to jump into the art posting pool too. I'm working on two different knitting projects right now, a scarf that I can't finish till I get more of the yarn (seriously this needs to stop happening to me) and a new shawl I just started. The shawl is gonna be a simply triangle design but using the trinity stitch which I just learned and I think looks awesome.

The beginnings of my new shawl, the needles are a size US 7mm and the yarn is James C Brett Chunky Marble (col MC15 lot 986)

The cool thing about the trinity stitch is it makes these little bobbles, hence the reason it's also known as the blackberry stitch.

Almost done with this one, I just need 2 more skiens, really just 1 1/2, it needs about a third more length and I want to add a fringe onto the ends.
The stitch pattern was really simple, just ask if you want it.

This is the scarf I did for my cousin Stephen, its really wide and long. My flatmate Kris is modeling it here since if I put it on I have to wrap it around my neck 3 times to make it a manageable length. The pattern is just a straight knit, and I'm debating putting a fringe on the ends.

I'm gonna have to get/make a knitting icon if I keep this up.

Woohoo for craftiness!

I love that superlong scarf... I love superlong scarves to begin with, and wish I had a need for them, but I love them anyway. :)

Is the greenish-yellow scarf done in the trinity stitch, too, it looks like it has a fantastic, almost nubby texture.

Can't wait to see more of the triangle shawl! :)

I love long scarves too, I used to have this ridiculously long one in a weird shade like semi-rotten avocado (it sounds gross but was kinda pretty) but I lost it on UCLA campus ;_; It was the first scarf I had ever made also.

They do look almost the same, but the trinity stitch has a lacy look to it when done and the other stitch (I think its a seed stitch) is very solid. The green one is a simple
row 1: (k1, p1)*repeat, k1
row 2: knit
repeat until desired length
The trinity stitch is done by purling 3 stitches together and then following it with a k1,p1,k1 in a single stitch. It's kinda funky and I would never had figured it out if not for youtube instructional videos. They've been very very helpful in learning new patterns. The knitting stitches together followed by adding stitches makes holes in the pattern giving it a lace look.

That scarf is HUGE!

I need to get more opportunities to wear that rainbow scarf you and Kelsie made for me.
