Fair Isle shawl – in the round III

First of all, I am sorry that the photos are so dark. But... anyhoo.

So I cut the shawl and used a KnitPicks tunisian chrochet needle with a very long cable (or rather two unified cables) to pick up the stitches. Many, many of them. Then I put knitting needles on the cables.
Here is a close up on the edging so far. It's going to be at least twice as wide. It's two knit, two purl, just as I did for the Kotten blanket.
And at the very bottom, increases. This is fun. It really is great fun to make the edging. Strangely enough.
Again, sorry about the photos. Some other day, brighter photos!


Socks for husband

I always have some small projects going while working with big ones. These socks for my husband are finished now.

Yarn: Raggi. I love that yarn for socks. It really keeps its shape after washing.

Fair Isle shawl – in the round II

I've finished the body of the shawl and now it is time to sew off and cut it open. Right now it looks like a crazy giant hat. Or a funny looking knit skirt.
