Small projects and projects that are meant to go slowly is the new norm for me as I try to heal my knitting appendages. A project I saw that caught my eye was the ten-stitch spiral blanket. It takes ten stitches, as luck would have it...
|Ten-stitch Spiral Knitted Blanket|
This blanket is worked in garter stitch so every stitch is the knit stitch. A great project for a beginner. You start with a several-pie-wedge sections that you knit together into a circle then start the spiral outward by knitting 9 stitches then picking up and knitting together with a stitch from the previous "round".
It is pretty simple and rather mindless which is a great use of time at the end of the day when you want to accomplish something while just sitting like a lump in your wonderful rocking chair...perhaps all by yourself.
