Reverting To Knitting . . . No. 223 February 2012
And another piece of knitting off the needles, blocked and photographed.
I bought this yarn which is 100% silk in 2009 from my friend Ailsa, who has a wonderful hand-dyeing company called Knitabulous. It was the first purchase I made from her and I’ve been looking at it ever since.
So I eventually made a shawl by increasing stocking stitch until I was fed up with it, then doing feather and fan until I ran out of yarn. I tried my best to improve on the colour in the photograph, which should be a much more beautiful green than that – Sorry Ailsa, I didn’t do your fantastic yarn justice. But I love it.
