My F Bomb turned out to be a quick knit! I have a teeny tiny (slightly rude) finished object for this week.
Pattern: The F Bomb by Jenifer Spock-Rank
Yarn: Bernat Satin Solids in black and some scraps of Caron Simply Soft for accents
Needles: US 5s
The knitting of the bomb portion went pretty well. I was getting a nice fabric on the 5s and none of the stuffing is showing through. My crochet for the fuse could be a bit tighter but I think it looks very fuse like. Now, my duplicate stitch is ATROCIOUS but at least successful for my first go at it.
I have looked at several tutorials now for the duplicate stitch and I think having this piece being in the round and the fact that there is stuffing on the inside makes this process not as simple as it would be for a flat piece. All I really need is more practice and I think I can improve.
I really liked this pattern and I think I’m going to crank out a few more to give out to coworkers and family once it’s safe to be in the same place at the same time again. I am finding this kind of knitting to be very cathartic!
I should have had a few of those to hurl the other day but my F-bombs were, unfortunately verbal. 😳
I need to knit some.
Hubby could use some. HA
I absolutely love this!
