Ten Rows to Go
Yes I have 10 rows to go and I can cast off the feather and fan shawl. It is a picot edge cast off which I have never done before so wish me luck. The edge is finished with an I-Cord which I also have never done before, other than the knitting Nancy or French knitting way as a kid. So I will be learning 2 new techniques here, hopefully. Agfest was great, there were a few wool sites but still nothing which grabbed me with the WOW factor, except for maybe THIS They had 12ply Boucle Mohair in beautiful colours, and their business card has a pattern for a scarf and shawl knitted on 8, 10 and 15mm needles for a real quick knit. I did however buy some more Fiber Trends patterns, I was especially interested in the felted clogs, I have just found my very first felting project. They are knitted in 10ply doubled so I will be placing an order with Bendigo Woollen Mills for that as I know that Bendigo Wool felts well. I will of course be starting with a small childs pair as a trial run. Will post some pics of the F&F shawl soon.
