Playing with the weavettes

As promised, here's the result of the first try out with the Weavette. I got two - a 2x2 and a 2x4.

Here's the 2x2 using leftover yarn from the multidirectional scarf I knitted last year.









One 2x2 and 4 2x4s later, this is Jordi's bathroom floor. (Well, not quite - hers is original Art Deco, is black and white and the joins are neater!)







And this is my latest knitting project: the Trellis scarf from the Interweave Knits mag I bought last weekend in lace-weight cashmere from School Products, NYC. I chose a relatively small lace project to start with, so that there would not be 100s of stitches to take out if I were to go wrong.

I can't say that I find knitting three times into the same 7 stitches very easy though.

  • Those wooden knitting needles sure look good Gill (as does your beautful kntting). Can you recommend them?

  • Actually, portions of my bathroom floor don't look as good as that! Especially the joins..
    OK, I am going to have to get one of those, and am delighted to see that it arrived so FAST! They are on the ball in the reparations department, in any case.

  • Yasmin, I bought mine in Purl Soho, New York City around the time I wrote that blog entry. Perhaps they will be able to give you details

    A website called eloomination also has much information which could be helpful.

    Best of luck in your search!
