- Pattern - Garter Stitch Triangular Shawl, Basic Form 1 from Knitting in the Nordic Tradition
Used a K2tog cast off which keeps the edge tight. Next time I'll use something a little looser.
Really enjoyed the meditative quality of the garter stitch.
Just a little somethin' to throw across your shoulders as the nights begin to hold a little cool. A sweet and simple knotted front.
A subtley triangular back.
Was about 75% complete when I realized that I wanted a softer "point" of the triangle so "froggy came a courtin" and I cast on again with three initial stitches instead of one. Much, much better.
Met the FABULOUS Laura of Orinda5 and her sweet family on Saturday at the Franconia Sculpture Park Fall Gala. Total blast. She brought me the loveliest stitch markers ever. Stretch Markers. Keep checking her Etsy shop and grab them up when she posts them. They are the best I've ever seen.
She and I didn't get as much knitting done as I'd hoped. Hopefully we can get together again (sans children?) to try to get the knit on. Anyone want to meet us at the Park some weekend?
With all the Sculpture Park activity, nuttnhubby's been working like a madman. What's a nuttnmama and son to do to entertain themselves?
Set em up carefully.
Best to light two at a time. Color theory and all that jazz.
