The answer is domino

Apparently one new project wasn’t enough, last night this happened. This is a baby bonnet in the making. I do think the answer to my need of getting some knitting done is domino knitting. It’s quick, never more than 33 stitches on the needle and instant gratification in the form of progress. Domino knitting means that you make a square by simply decreasing two stitches in the middle of your row, every other row. Then you pick up new stitches along the first square and then you continue like this. It’s the same technique as in the blanket me and my mum made a couple of years ago.

Also, I got a new project bag which is simply delicious. I’m not sure about the yarn or the purple/dark green combination but I’m quite excited to see the finished bonnet.
