My Life As Garter Stitch

I’m still plugging and plugging along, knit Stitch after knit Stitch, with no apparent progress. I see the balls of yarn (I’m alternating skeins) decreasing, but honestly, I can’t detect any growth in my scarf.

A friend suggested putting a locking stitch marker in the stitch I start with every morning and I’m going to try that as soon as I get home and can get my hands on one. Until then, it’s the neverending garter stitch project for me.

This is not to complain, though. It’s cashmere! It’s a joy to knit every stitch. But, although I’m usually a process knitter, this is for me and it has a sort of spectacular finish coming. I can’t wait to be able to wear it!
