for the B-day wishes yesterday on Ravelry and on Facebook.
You have made my day brighter and cheerier ;-)
Second I would like to introduce
Pattern La Sarita by Janet Weston
: September 2 2012
: September 5 2012
Needle and yarn
US 6 - 4.0 mm
1 skeins = 437.4 yards (400.0m)
A wonderful pattern and a great knit!
Never get's boring, because the bottom-up architecture let's you make the lacey
(and longish .... more than 400 sts to cast on) part first
and then you get to learn a "new" estonian stitch and after that you just do short rows.
The I-cord bind-off is perfect for this project :-D
Ahem ... yes ... BEADS were optional ...
so I didn't do them ( I am not quite the "beader" ...LOL)
With this project I also tried something I saw the other day in the projects of a fellow Raveler:
Folded blocking (<-- that's what I shall call it) ...
you fold your shawl in half and block it with blocking wires and pins ...
yes, you get a middle fold ....BUT the shawl turns absolutely symmetrical and it uses less blocking space ;-)
