Well, what cold be better than to run after a tassel on a garter stitch shawl? And jump as high as possible and try to kill it and pretending it is a mouse?
I may try this out - but after dark. I mean, men in white coates are a bad combination to the upcoming christmas...
Nevertheless, this is one of my never ending knitting garter shawl projects.
|Tassels and a little sparkling bead is a dot to the i.|
This time I used a free pattern called Josephine. Starting with three stitches and increase a stitch every other row until the shawl is large enough. Simple and totally mindless.
What is not mindless is that red mohair I talked about in my previous post. Since Rauma has taken out the bright red and only makes those pale reds, I used my stashed yarn I was lucky to get on sale.
I got a lot of great tips from you about red mohair - and actually ordered some from Denmark.
Their photo showed a bright red - I got a brown one. Really not impressing - seems to be a problem in that shop with their bright colored photos and live colors differing a lot.
Anyway, it seems like the only place I can get a proper red mohair is in another danish online yarn shop.
I have searched all over the net - and have not found any place to buy bright red mohair. It will take some time to overcome my last experience in that shop - so I will keep searching.
I am so very pleased with this shawl. The orange with a lot of hue and the bright red are a perfect match. Keep the garter coming :-)
