So something odd has happened. I assure you no one is as surprised as I.
That’s a garter stitch rectangle.
Well no, that started life as a linen stitch rectangle, but knitting linen stitch with actual linen is a surefire way to go mad, so it made the transition to being a garter stitch rectangle instead.
And that? That is what will become nearly a freaking foot of icord.
Because for some unknowable reason I sort of decided to knit a facecloth. Well no, I know the reason…it’s because linen facecloths are so scrubby and awesome that they’re worth the bother. But my oh my it’s a lot of bother!
