|Clue one is the part before the brioche section. Clue two is the rest of the shawl.|
Well, I have always wanted to learn the brioche stitch. I even have a knitting book about it. But it has been collecting dust - and so has the wish about learning it.
|Clue two: Brioche and slipped stich sections.|
And the surprise was rather breath taking when clue two was published friday: Knit a whole lot of brioche.
Thankfully he provide a video of the technique. He advised to do a swatch - but I would rather knit a scarf than a small swatch.
I just started knitting the brioche right on the shawl.
And it worked. I was so proud - I have learned a new technique. Although it felt like I knitted and knitted and never got anywhere.
So much knitting and so few centimeters in length. Clue two ended with a large slip stitch section.
I must say that there is a lot of knitting in this MKAL. Maybe a little too much. But hey, I am half way through it. And there are 371 stitches on my needle.
And since he calls this Exploration Station I must prepare to climb another mountain.
It seems like the shawl is a giant swatch in knitting techniques. So stay tuned - next clue are waited friday. Prepare the climbing gear...
