This FO's pretty simple - no magic here - just a loooooong rectangle of knits and purls in blocks of pattern.
There is magic in the yarn though- so complete all on its own...blended fibers locally grown, sheared, washed and spun together not far from here...
yielding something so willing and able to both take and hold a severe blocking...
But the real magic here in the gauge and how, through blocking...comes drape and movement despite a surprising amount of overall weight - this piece is not like lace...its quite hefty...as you can see in the photo below, the piece doesn't collapse into a pool as lace can do...
But check out how the thing moves.....
I am not making a huge effort to get this to happen
Also amazingly warm!
This one's going to see a lot of action!
(These shots from the back also illustrate how my hair needs some action too. I must get on that!)
Thanks for dropping by!
