Thanks to Johnny on New Stitch a Day, this old dog learned a new trick. I followed his tutorial on the Whelk Stitch and knitted a prayer shawl of which I am quite proud. It has a nice drape and is very cuddly. Now...time for a celebratory martini...or two.
Thanks to our friends on New Stitch a Day, this old dog learned a new trick and applied it to a prayer shawl that I am knitting for a friend going through a rough patch. He requested something acrylic so it could be easily washed (chemo issues). The texture of the fabric is almost blanket-like and very soft.
I just finished a baby blanket for a friend's daughter using an arcylic/cotton blend. It's lightweight and easy to wash. THINK: baby spew.
