I love colours !
That's why this yarn called out to me
(though it's polyester)
On top of that it's shiny
and easy to knit.
A friend on Ravelry (who I met in a yarn shop !)
made a lovely cowl / shawl of it,
and as soon as I bought my skein, I remembered that.
I asked her how many stitches she had
and started right away
Mitered knitting is easy
because you never have more stitches on your needle
than at the start of every new block.
And NO sewing blocks together :
every new block starts at the side (or two sides)
of an old one !
(if you're interested, you can find the pattern here)
It's amazing : the colours of the second row
just fit so nicely next to each other ...
If I had meant it to be like that up front,
I would probably NOT have succeeded doing so !
The yarn did it all by itself !
Very happy with it !
Because there is a special birthday tomorrow
I made a little card for a friend
Stitching on "lutradur" with a thick thread on the bobbin,
fabric and paper underneath ...
