Just a quick update. I finished the shrug and tam from last weeks post. Here are the details.
Yarn: Araucania Coliumo Solid, 5 skeins
Size knit: Medium
How to make this seamless:
1) provisionally cast on 1/2 the stitches required and skip to the 1x1 body section
2) knit 1x1 rib for required length
3) increase to 2x stitches, do NOT turn, JOIN provisionally cast on stitches and increase to 2x, JOIN and
4) continue knitting in the ROUND 2x2 rib for desired length.
5) cast off
I had less than a yard left when I was done. The balloons were from my birthday -- we don't celebrate FO's with balloons.
Edited to add my Spring snap, I know it's springtime when the snowdrops bloom.
