My latest rave: my first moebius. A very good experience.
Start: 21st June 2009
Finish: 11th July 2009
Needles: 4 mm / 80 cm Addi Turbos
Yarn: Wollmeise "Molly"; 100% superwash Merino; colourway "Neptun"
Pattern: Joukahainen by Kristel Nyberg. Published in Finnish in the magazine Ulla 03/07. Pattern is available as an English translation as Ravelry download.
Name: The name comes from the last movement of the orchestral suite The Planets by Gustav Holst.
Modifications: Added 5 rounds of stockinette after having joined all the pieces together to give the arms some more room. Added k2 between the raglan decreases to avoid the gaping holes. Did some improvisational neck-shaping with short rows. Worked out pretty well.
This is one of 2 feather and fan shawls I completed recently. This one was made from worsted wt. cotton I found the yarn at the "mill Ends" section of AC Moore, so I have no idea where it came from.
Looking to meet other guys in the WNC area who knit. Are you out there?????
... with fleece not quite as white as snow.
