One creative thing - Day 2

Today's one creative thing:  I learned a new knitting stitch.  It's called the Grecian Rib stitch and I found it over at The Purl Bee, where Laura shared her beautifully tasseled Grecian Rib Scarf.  I don't have a project in mind for this stitch yet, but I love learning new stitches -- any excuse, really, to feel the yarn between my fingers, hear the light clicking of metal needles, and see a whole new fabric come to life.


  1. LOVE that yarn!! What is the brand and color?? you're so creative you probably sheared the sheep, spun it, dyed it and now are knitting it. ;)

    1. Me, too! Love it. It's Koigu merino wool. I've had that particular skein for quite a while, so I'm not sure about the colour. If I'm not mistaken, the yarn is hand-dyed by batch, so I think that no two dye lots are ever alike. It's like knitting with a work of art. Beautifully made.

  2. I really like the texture of this stitch! Very cool! Your choice of yarn is also spectacular!
