I Dub Thee: Fallout Wrap!

The socks that I’ve been knitting have gotten me interested in other knitted projects, so I decided (after many advice filled conversations with an old school friend who is extremely competent in the knitting department) that I’d start a nice easy project to ease me into the world of knitting.  The pattern I’m using is called the ‘Hitchiker’ which can be found on Ravelry here.

I’m using 4ply merino wool in three earthy tones, on a 3.75mm circular needle (first time using a circular needle….WHY HAVE I NOT USED THESE BEFORE?!) and I’m really enjoying the project so far.  As you can see in the image below I’m about halfway through the pattern already, all of that lovely garter stitch is really fast to knit up.  I love the texture of it – it’s relaxed and stretchy yet still dense and will keep my neck warm next winter!

Initially I was just calling this project the ‘Hitchiker Wrap’, but I’ve been knitting it while watching my favourite fantasy author Patrick Rothfuss’ Twitch channel as he livestreams his adventures in the recently released Fallout 4 game.  My favourite author, my favourite game and a great project to work on….what more could you want?  So I’ve decided to called this wrap my ‘Fallout Wrap’.  I think it’s rather fitting with it’s earthy apocalyptic tones, and would be quite handy if you needed to fight some ghouls in cold weather, just saying.

Also, I DID promise some photos of the progress of my coffee afghan, which I’m crocheting in lovely undyed Tasmanian brown sheep wool.  I have quite a few squares done now!  I only do one or two every now and then, but I’m still enjoying it 🙂
