A First!

I did something over the weekend that I have never done before...I started another knitting project before my last project was finished.  I've always heard that it's not good to knit more than one project at a time because your tension changes from project to project and the difference will be able to be seen in the finished items.  I have no idea if it's true or not, but it sounded plausible, so for that reason I've always just knit one thing at a time.  However, I needed something to work on that took a little less concentration than the cabled socks that I'm am knitting now and decided to throw caution to the wind and cast on a simple baby blanket.  This will be the perfect project to work on when I want to think about something besides what I am knitting.  I guess the tension theory will be proven one way or the other once the blanket is finished!

I've never noticed a difference in my tension. It will be interesting to see if you notice a difference!

Such a pretty color of blue! Good luck on the tension issues!

I always have two knitting projects going at once. Right now I am doing a lace scarf that requires concentration and a pair of simple socks that I can work on in front of the tv. I have never noticed a difference in tension. Looking forward to seeing your progress!
