Garter Stitch Love

Good Morning guys! :) 
I have a couple of projects on the needles right now, and have some finished projects being blocked and waiting to be photographed. I will share with you soon. For the time being I would like to gush a little about the garter stitch. 
 My local yarn shop recently had a yarn sale, and I got a large zip lock bag full of some gorgeous neutral tweeds. At first I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it, but then it soon dawned on me! I am calling this piece 'The Poor Man's Scarf'. 

These neck worms by Sandra Juto is part of where my inspiration is coming from and of course the classic, beautiful, simplicity of the garter stitch.

As the garter stitch can tend to be boring and not exciting to knit, there is something to say about this beautiful classic stitch.

I am incorporating 6 different colors into this infinity scarf. This piece is serving to be creatively spontaneous! I am laying out and changing the different colors/stripes as I go along. 

Hope you all have a great Tuesday! :)
