Truly one of my favourites pattern. Though I have to say the yarn makes this absolutely fabulous. Have you heard of “Hemp for Knitting” yes we used to tie our old newspapers into bundles for the recycling (That was back home in Switzerland way long ago). Well this Hemp is for knitting now. much more refined and softer than the rope I used for the papers.

Love this colour combo

Love, Love love knitting with this but then I enjoy knitting with Linen too that too can be a bit stiff and hard on your hands. But it softens up soooo much with knitting, washing and wearing the garment.

Pink, White and Purple colour combo. Looks nice too

I hope you are not shying away from this when you touch the hank  it really does get much softer with wear.

Feather Duster Shawl

I did like this shawl when I knit the first one for Wendy at Unwind Yarn House and decided to make another one for a gift to take along to Switzerland.  With Needle size #5,5mm and only one skein of “Basic Merino Socks” from  Fleece Artist the project took off and I am happy to see that this one too looks very nice knit up too.  Marianne I hope you enjoy wearing this shawl….and thanks for all you kindness.

The pattern is called Feather Duster  by Susan Lawrence and available from Ravelry.com
 
Mir gefallte diser Schal gut als ich den Ersten für Wendy from Unwind Yarn House stricken durfte.  So dachte ich dass ich dieses Tuch noch einmal stricken will und mit in die Schweiz nehmen will für ein Geschenk an jemanden Lieben.  So mit Nadel Nummer 5,5mm und nur einer Strange “Basic Merino Socks” Wolle von Fleece Artist hatte ich den zweiten Schal von der Nadel gestrickt.  Auch dieser sieht gut aus…Marianne ich hoffe du hast freude daran und ….Danke für Eure grosszügige Gastfreuntschaft.
