Knit One Purl Two...

Since taking up knitting again last year after a long hiatus, I've discovered that my knitting passion lies in projects that don't include sleeves, shaping, buttonholes, pattern repeats of more than 10 rows. So that makes me a flat knitter who, upon occasion, will experiment with a cable stitch or two.

One of my favorite pattern sources (other than Ravelry, of course. where my ID is Owlsfeathers) is Quincy & Co.  Their yarn is available in various weights and scrumptious colors. Their patterns are unique and oh so comfy looking. I was particularly taken by their Nebraska Throw available in their Home collection of patterns. While I didn't use Quince & Co. yarns for this project, I am beyond happy with the results.

This is an easy to follow pattern perfect for TV knitting. Although I must that while knitting and watching Scandal, I mistakenly repeated one of the pattern rows. I though about ripping back to the mistake, I decided to leave it to remember what I was doing when I worked on this project!
