As I promised/threatened, I cast on for the Shetland Triangle immediately after blogging yesterday. Here it is:
I went with a US7 (4.5mm) needle and am very pleased with the results.
This is a fun pattern — very easy to execute the stitches and easy enough to pretty much memorize. Yu really don’t need stitch markers for this one, but I did place one, right before the center stitch. It’s there as a reminder to me, to say “Hey! You’ve reached the center!”
Because this is such an easy pattern to knit, it’ll probably become boring after a while. But I think knitting with handspun will make it less tedious. The yarn is just lovely to knit — sproingy and soft and with enough variations in the color to keep things interesting.
In fact, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go knit now.
