Sunday Morning Knit Wit ~ Ridged Rib

Good Morning and Happy Valentine's Day

This weeks featured stitch is the Ridged Rib stitich.  It is super easy and is a great stitch for flat work such as scarves, blankets or placemats.  It is worked with 4 repeating rows that is easily memorized and it is easy to tell where you left off so it is a great portable project.  It has great texture and try mixing up colors for some really fun stripes.

Row 1: Knit
Row 2: Knit
Row 3: P1, *K1, P1; repeat from * to end
Row 4: K1, *P1, K1; repeat from * to end

Repeat these 4 rows

Here I've used this stitch in a fun book jacket and is one of very few projects that I am actually keeping for myself.  I love reading and this cover just makes reading so much more enjoyable!

Be creative and have fun with this one!

Have you been tuned into the olympics?  What and amazing opening ceremony that was and I'm just amazed at how beautiful Canada is. 

I am determined to start my own little knitting olympics and while watching the real athletes do their thing, I will be finishing up all my projects that are half done and just waiting for me to pick up again.  I currently have a baby blanket, a scarf and a pair of fingerless gloves started and put aside.  My goal:  by closing ceremony they will all be done!  And hopefully I won't have more than one new project started!

Are you with me?  Let me know how many projects you hope to finish up while watching the games.

Till next week ~  Stay Warm and keep you needles clicking! 

Next weeks stitch -- Woven Stitch
