At the moment
it's all knitting over here ...
The "petal cowl" is steadily growing.
Though I was "fighting" with the pattern in the beginning,
now I really know hów it all works !
In fact :
I know the most rows by heart !
(but I don't forget to insert a "life line"
through the stitches from time to time !)
The fact that this pattern looks so well
is because I use a gradient yarn
(Noro Kureyon Sock, which is out of production now)
The switch from one colour to another
takes several metres.
The fun thing about NORO is the random
that's why I LOVE this yarn.
Noro Kureyon Sock is a one ply yarn
that means that it's not very strong.
There is also sometimes very thin sections.
That means I have to do some needed repair :
I break the thread,
(sometimes even get a too thin section out !)
and "weave" the to thin parts in each other with a needle
NOT FUNNY !
So that's why I have these mixed feelings about this yarn !
