Knitting for charity: More shawls, please!12:04 PM
The shawl contest supporting Women's line is on until the end of this week, so there was time to knit one more shawl. Digging into my stash revealed a bag full of Novita Florica, so I started experimenting with a triangular shape this time. To take advantage of the project as a learning opportunity, I added some popcorn stitches and tried a looser bind off. I had tried this looser bind off (*slip 2 sts back to left needle, K2tog, K1*, repeat) once before, but I must have skipped the K1 as it turned out super tight and I decided to forget it. The other day I ran into Liina and her new Rosewater shawl. She liked the looser bind off, so I gave it another try and it worked out perfectly.
But now I'll have to hop on my bike and be my own bike courier to get the shawl to Novita as it's the last day of the competition!
