Here's the shawlette I made from all the left over ends of all the many other ones I have made over the last couple of years. The Noro yarn is quite expensive so, as I showed in last Wednesday's post, I had saved a bag full of tiny balls. There were dozens of ends to weave in securely but it was all worthwhile as I ended up with this wearable result below......
I have also finished this one, from a different pattern, and they now have the addition of tassels and beads. This one is going to be sent to my lovely friend Dolores in Slovenia. She already knows as I gave her the choice of colour.
Here's the one showed the other day that I made for DD2
Finally this is a really long one I made a while ago.
I'm a reasonably competent knitter, but I always take, what I call,"mindless" knitting with me on my travels as if I keep to garter stitch I can still admire the view!
By using a quality textured yarn, and there are so many wondrous ones to be had, it doesn't matter that I just use garter stitch and I can even knit without looking when I don't have enough light. I have often slipped a stitch whilst knitting in the car at night and it is easy to stitch up the dropped stitch invisibly if the yarn is textured.
Useful desirable items made in time that would otherwise be wasted.
There were quite a few mistakes made in this one below!
