This post features my knitting projects!
I am knitting shawls -- just the knit stitch all the way through, with two strands of yarn, each a different color, producing a sort of tweed effect. I'm using 25% wool / 75% acrylic yarn. Each shawl takes three 200-yard skeins (100 grams, or 3-1/2 ounces, per skein) of each color. I'm using size 11 knitting needles, and I get about 4-1/2 stitches and about 4 rows to an inch.
Below, you can see photos of four shawls: two shawls I have knitted, the shawl I am currently knitting, and the next shawl I plan to knit (well, just the yarn for this one).
My first shawl (completed) is green and gray. It has 40 stitches to a row.
