I love wool

So, the knitting machine was under the bed for fifteen years. A couple of months ago I got it out, cleaned and oiled it. A few weeks ago I checked and sorted my hoard of yarn. On Saturday I had a little play to see if I could still knit, and the information I thought long gone popped back into my brain.

On Sunday I re-learned how to unpick! But yesterday I finished and washed my scarf, today I blocked it. I could do better but I am happy. It may need another press.

Lambswool/Angora/nylon, one strand, knit at T5. 800 knit rows, 2400 passes of the carriages. Light and fluffy.

    isn’t wonderful, when we discover that we don’t have to relearn everything!!! The scarf is lovely, We might actually see cool weather here this weekend…. So far a light sweater is all we are needing (it is not supposed to be like that here).
