Yarn Doodling

Many people call this "swatching." I'm not really swatching for anything in particular. I left the house today without my knit/crochet tools. Luckily, I have a few crochet hooks in my purse. I also just happened to have two skeins of this gorgeous Koigu in my bag. I had knitted up this beret over the weekend, but after trying it on, I decided I didn't really like it, so I ripped it out.
I took out my size "H" crochet hook and started crocheting in the granite stitch. I love this stitch. It's drapey, the fabric lies flat and the woven look is faboo with Koigu and many other variegated yarns. Not sure if I'll make anything, but I do enjoy Yarn Doodling.

I wish my doodles looked so good! I like that stitch, I'll have to learn more about it!

as someone who has been seen in PUBLIC knitting with two pencils and gift wrapping ribbon because I forgot my WIP, I can DEFINITELY relate to the yarn doodles. Lucky you, you had actual yarn available. And such a beautiful yarn at that.

A lot of people don't understand why I sometimes just knit, not intending to knit anything. I don't know whether to be happy or concerned that the one person just like me is you. :)
