Complicated is Out Simple Knitting Patterns Are Beautiful
You know some people think if they are not knitting some complicated, cabled, multi colored, or pattern changing baby knitting pattern, they are failures. Well let me tell you, simple knitting baby patterns certainly have a very special place in my knitting repertoire. And I’ll tell you why, they’re simple.
Really, I’m serious. Can you knit a really complicated pattern if you want to spend time with your family, watching TV or a movie? If you are waiting in the doctor’s office and you are listening for your name to be called, can you pull out your terribly complicated baby knitting pattern and go for it? If you are taking a traveling vacation and you are riding passenger as you travel across the most beautiful scenery and you don’t really want to miss it but you want to knit also, is a pattern that you have to keep count and keep track of pattern changes, the best choice? Have you gotten my point yet?
In the above scenarios, a simple baby knitting pattern would fit the bill. You don’t have to worry about losing count or using more than your two needles and your not worry about the upcoming color change and you aren’t trying to keep track of your cable needles and when to do it next. It is just easy, simple and pleasant knitting.
I love mindless knitting, just me, gorgeous yarn and my two needles. A baby blanket, bath towel, wash cloths or bunting, it is simple straight forward wonderful simple baby knitting. Plus it is something that you will be able to complete in a reasonable amount of time. But what if you like those complicated patterns, I do.
You have to consider, how many doctor’s appointment, or movies or vacations will you have, watch or take. You can always work on your more complicated patterns when your life allows.
Maybe the moral to this story is, if you are serious about your knitting and you love it as much as I do, you will have all kinds of baby knitting patterns. Easy, simple, cables, pattern changing, color changing wonderful and always ongoing knitting patterns.
I have several projects in different stages of completion all the time. I think it is the true caliber of a fine knitter. And simple baby knitting patterns are among my most favorite. I hope yours too.
