Getting Hot In Here
This odd garment it simply unexplainable. It is a shawl, a scarf and something between an oversized poncho and a sleeping bag. I think I may be able to use it as a tent too....
It was not good explained. But when I got it - it got really fun to knit this. At first you knit a rectangle in garter stitch.
Then you join to knit in the round increasing and decreasing all the way ending with a lace part.
I tend to knit large garments and this is no exception. It is huge - and I had 524 stitches on my needle before starting the lace part.
It is my first time using the danish Holst supersoft yarn and I love it. But it bleeds a lot and may be a bad idea for color work.
I miss a thin wool yarn like this for sale i Norway. For garments such as Viajante it would be nice to have a thinner yarn to go to.
Such a lovely light wool yarn and the price is low. I used nearly seven skeins for this wacky and wolly shawl thingie.
This is nice to use when you get cold on a trip or in a movie theatre. Or to use for a party over a nice dress. The use for it is endless. I have already started a new one.
