This has been some really good practice doing short rows, including the ‘wrap & turn’. I have actually been having a lot of fun with it! Not sure if you can tell, but it is still on the needles. I am not quite sure how long it is supposed to be . . . I have misplaced the pattern. :p
Now, my idea is to fancy it up a bit with a border in a nice contrasting color, like pink, or peach, or . . . burgundy, or . . . I can’t decide. Maybe even work it in some mercerized cotton thread! I think I have decided on a pattern. A crochet pattern to be exact. I am very excited! I have used this book before, on the border of my green triangle shawl.
Well . . . maybe I have decided on two patterns. Tell me what you think about these:
I have enjoyed this pattern so much, I started another! The yarn I am using is absolutely fabulous. Soft and drapey. It is 65% Bamboo Fiber – 27% Cotton – 8% Nylon. Made in the USA by Kollage Yarns.
(hmmm, I went to the website, and it appears this yarn is no longer available. But there are many other fantastic choices . . . )
So, there you have it. This is what has been taking up a lot of my knitting time. Everything is blooming and warming up nicely here in my neck of the woods, so I probably won’t be wanting to wear these for a few months. Let’s not think about Fall yet, it’s barely Spring! (And, I hope it’s not still snowing wherever you are.)
