Shawls and cowls

Just in time for the snow

My Leftie

One finished Leftie - just in time for the snow.

I was a little nervous if it would be too small to warm my neck, but that's no problem. You could of course knit it longer, then it'll automaticly get wider as well. But I do not fancy too long shawls. You could be caught on to something.

The pattern is easy. The only technique used other than plane knitting is short rows. And they are not that difficult to learn (Here's a Danish article + video.)

And finally a picture in full length.

A quick Leftie

Last thursday my sister called.

After some small talk, she asked me if I was ready for sunday?! Ehhh Sunday? Yeah, she said. Mum and me are finished. Ehhh?!

Then it hit me. Ultimo august we had been on a girls trip to Flensburg. Here we bought 3 matching skeins of yarn. The idea was to knit a project each before we met again in the christmas time. In the meantime I had rescheduled our yearly christmas come-together to 3 weeks earlier than planned. And forgotten the skein in the corner of my living room.

Oh well - I picked it up and cast on stitches. I didn't finish it, but I got far. At least I had something to show Sunday.

It was a Leftie. The pattern is easy. The only technique used other than plane knitting is short rows. And they are not that difficult to learn (Here's a Danish article + video.)
