Three weeks into the new year and I have my first FO! Given that last year I finished a total of THREE FOs I’m over the moon about this.
- Susan B. Anderson‘s Yowza Weigh It Shawl
- Miss Babs Yowza Whatta Skein in Perfectly Wreckless
- US #9 needles
- A kitchen scale
Garter stitch and wildly variegated handdyed go together so well. I of course have been stalking ravelry for more ideas as well as the Miss Babs site. I’ve held strong so far.
I only made one mod – instead of kfb for the ruffle increases I did a YO and then I knit the YOs tbl on the next row. I just didn’t feel like doing all those kfb’s.
I did the plain BO because I didn’t think you’d notice the picot BO with this yarn and let’s face it – picot BOs take FOR. EVER. 600 sts of picot bind off? No thank you.
Once done I washed it in the machine on delicate and tossed it in the dryer on low temp for 15 or 20 minutes. It came out perfectly and I love that I can easily wash it to freshen it up.
I got this coat in the late summer because I thought I’d be able to wear more accessories with it. So glad I got the black!
I’ll catch you on the purl side…
