I saw a this or that on Instagram a few weeks ago and I saved it, thinking it would be fun to blog about it. And since it’s Wednesday, and since Wednesdays are for knitting, and since I don’t have any new knitting to share with you, today’s the day.
This Or That . . .
Sleeves First or Body First
Chart or Written
Weave In Now or Weave In Later
Metal or Bamboo
Knitflix or Read and Knit
Monogomous or Too Many WIPs
Circular or Straight
Stitch Markers or Wing It
Here are my answers . . .
Body first. I’ve heard that sleeves can work as a gauge swatch but it’s not something I’ve ever tried.
Chart. I love to use charts and especially love to use them in the Knit Companion app.
Weave in Now. I really dislike weaving in ends so I try and do it as I go along rather than be faced with a whole lot of them to deal with at the end.
Both metal and bamboo. My interchangeable needles are bamboo (I got the Tulip set from Modern Daily Knitting almost 3 years ago and I use them a lot) but I also love Addi Turbo needles, especially when knitting lace.
Knitflix. Or anything else on tv. I don’t generally read and knit although I can do it.
Monogamous. Sort of. I usually have 2 projects going, one for at home and one that is portable. This occasionally expands to 3 but that’s my limit.
Stitch markers. But not many. I use them to mark the beginning of a round, because who wouldn’t? But I don’t use them when knitting lace because I can see the lace better without the stitch markers. I think it was Margene who told me to try this ages ago and I haven’t looked back since.
I hope you’ll give me your answers in the comments, I’d love to learn more about your knitting preferences and choices.
