Three things thursday: End of Summer projects

End of Summer
family tree in progress

1. Farewell to summer, and farewell to my favorite swimsuit for now!
2. Colour Complements test-drive I did, with a free pattern on Feeling Stitchy.
3. A family tree project in progress.

It's been a busy month, hence the limited blogging, but I'm happy to say I feel like I accomplished a fair bit this summer!

New Knit Stitch a Week: Pinterest Stitch

Pinterest Stitch

Well, I found this stitch on Pinterest, so that's what I'm calling it. :) I know I said I was taking a break from these posts, but I've gotten so busy lately with other projects, that I knit up a quick swatch as a stress-buster. :)

I cast on 16 stitches on size 9 needles, in a teal yarn from my stash. I really love the blocky, basket-y texture.

Knit from this pattern, found on Pinterest:

Here's the wrong side:

Pinterest stitch, wrong side

Does anyone have a name for this kind of stitch? :)
