First Project!! WIP - Simple Chenille Throw
OK, enough practicing!!

I started last night with Lion Brand Chenille T&Q Wine and Dusty Blue. Not using a pattern. I CO 90, moss st for 4 rows, then st st for the body with 5 moss st boarder. Gauge is about 4 st / 1". I didn't wait till my circs came :rollseyes: so I just CO as many ast the needle could handle that was a multiple of 10.

It will be a bit skinny, but will be soft and thick. I'll get a pic of the yarn and my first few rows soon.

BTW - Chenille hides mistakes like no one's business Great for a first project, but also difficult to see what stitch your supposed to do if you forgot the pattern!! We'll see how it works out.

Yeah, Jan, those stitches want to jump off that needle like a spring snake in a jar! :rofling: :rofling:

Well, I tried to get a couple of pics last night, but forgot that my Mac doesn't like my SanDisk CF card. So the pics got erased instead of downloaded :( I'll take a few more tonight and get the first color stripe in here and you can let me know what you think!

I thought chenille would be a challange...I love the stuff!! Very fun to work with, slides over my bamboo. Only thing I don't like is that you can't always tell if you are working P or K in moss stitch due to how fuzzy it is.

Oh, and I was wrong about the colors when I posted yesterday. They are Bourduex and Periwinkle. Was at work when I made the post and was looking at the brand website to guess the color.

And thanks for words of encouragement!! Pics to come when I get home from work.
