I took a pause from internet for two weeks in order to study more, and now I’m happy to announce that I have officially accomplished B1 from Portuguese language. And while there was no posting I haven’t neglected knitting; in fact I have two FOs and one almost finished wip.
The 1001 colors headband:
I really like how the colors are arranged, since it’s a yarn with very short color changes I wasn’t expecting to see any order in the fabric. I have used St George Catania Color cotton yarn, the one I originally wanted to use for double knitting. It’s soooo soft and pretty, gives a good stitch definition and did I mentioned how soft it is? I know many knitters don’t like to knit with cotton, I’m one of those rare ones who love it. I agree that it’s heavy, makes my wrists hurt, but still I
love it. This is why I’m glad summer is here and I can knit with cotton again.
My other FO, the Just another summer top is soaking right now, I will hopefully post a photo of it soon.
Instead here’s one more pic of Le Lys dans la vallée shawl:
I would like to try to find two test knitters, one who would knit it in lace weight and one who would knit a bit modified version in fingering. Since I haven’t done this before I have some doubts, is it OK to search for test knitters if I plan to offer the pattern for free? What do you think?
