Thanks! This is very useful!
It's very pretty and I love the color!
I love the rolled collar and cuffs! Nice job!
Put it away and wait for the right project to come along.
What a beauty! Makes lovely yarn, too. Congratulations!
It looks like a low twist single ply yarn. I would choose garter stitch lace worked on large needles relative to the yarn weight. Since the yarn is partly silk, the finushed shawl will drape beautifully. Please let us seecwhat you make!
Here's a thought. Save up a few car payments. Buy a folding floor loom, like a Schacht Baby Wolf. If you enjoy your two-shaft loom, you will greatly enjoy four, or more.
I agree, twisted stitches. See how the legs cross each other at the base of the stitch? Stitches can be twisted by knitting into the back leg or by the direction the yarn wraps around the working needle. It is tight, but also very pretty. You might be able to loosen the fabric just by doubling your needle size.
IMHO, give the blanket with instructions to wash and dry on the delicate setting. Tell her you used a new yarn and want to know if she has any problems with it. She probably wont . Just in case, Meanwhile, make another blanket.
Very nice. Even if you are covered by hair, it's cold down there on the floor.
What a guy! Give him a big hug for me! Nevermind your rotten shopping luck, he's wonderful!
I know a person who has frailty issues and says a heavy blanket makes it hard to breathe, harder for the diaphragm to open the lungs.
The down breed fleeces are especially surprising this way. Don't fret. The right project will come along one of these days.
Wonderful! She now needs a wheel of her own!
