Posts Tagged ‘touch 2 ply wool’

So many new things to learn when trying your hand at 2 ply wool lace knitting. Rather than buying special needles I found some very pointy, double ended needles and blocked one end with a rubber band. Then it was how to read a graph rather than each row of the pattern being written out. I did a fairly simple horseshoe lace, apparently in the ‘Shetland style’, so the return row was garter stitch meaning the pattern was the same on both sides. Enjoyed it but couldn’t read and knit at the same time because everything was a bit small and fiddly. Had a go at blocking the finished scarf so it was washed and dried stretched out so the pattern showed up more. Good to have a try, the wool feels very soft but quite tickly.
