Fan Shawl

While I haven't quite finished the first scarf/shawl (I still need to decide about crocheting around the edges), I started a new project this weekend. It's a modular pattern - and very addictive! I have eight of the 28 units finished so far. The yarn is Estonian and smells nice and sheepy, but I'm not sure I'll have enough. I just went ahead anyway, hoping that I'll be able to get some more. I'm using 4.5mm needles, and it's quite dense. It will certainly be warm!

Scarf number one

My first scarf is two-coloured-fisherman´s stitch, which is the stitch that Hedgehog is using, but this one is ribbed. (I used this instruction in German: I´m using Novita Rose mohair and a round needle number 5.
It is very easy, once you get used to it! One problem: mistakes are almost impossible to correct...

Happy New Year!

One of my new year's resolutions is to be better about blogging... I've started my first scarf/shawl of the year already - I'm not really sure if it is a scarf or a shawl yet... I got the book Knit One Below: One Stitch, Many Fabrics by Elise Duvekot for Christmas and had to give it a try. The yarn is Novita Puro Batik, needles 4mm.
