Last time at my LYS this book caught my eyes. This is a new (to me) technique and I find it very interesting and fun to knit. With this technique even I can make color work projects, without the infuriating muddle of strands, and without tears.
Free pattern: Inside-Outside scarf by Elise Duvekot
yarn: Katia Mexico, color # 5853
Gedifra Fashion Trend color # 4533 (the same as my first Thorpe hat)
needle: 6mm DP, important to use DP needles with this technique (or circs)
size after blocking: 7" x 90", the edges curled terrible, but blocking took care of that
start-finish: Jan. 22-24 (I was so obsessed, that it almost flew off my needles)
I even find the wrong side attractive. The fun here is, that you can choose different weight yarns, and it still looks good, but you don't have to. Katia Mexico is slightly thinner as Gedifra Fashion Trend, but not very much noticeable. I'd like to try totally different yarns together some time. The edges are not very pretty, don't know if it's just me. I'd love to knit another scarf, but I think I'll try some socks first, or something else from the book, but a small project for sure. (I just finished a second sweater for Hannah, pictures comming soon).
PS: My dogs like oranges. Whenever I want to eat ONE orange, I have to peel TWO oranges. Just saying.
