Project Description

What was your source for this knitting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo annis Link to website or photo www.knitty.com/ISSUEss10/PATTannis.php What advice would you give someone starting this project? ... a word on blocking... the icelandic yarn I am using really wants to be washed after knitting. I do this on the wool cycle of my washing machine, cold, with special wool detergent. I then let the machine spin it at full speed. When I get the item out it is damp - not wet - and can easily be shaped and pulled into proper shape and size (also applies to sweaters)... or with this lace shawl I pin it onto the guest mattress and hope that I get all the pins out again when I am done :)... ( I have a german washing machine that can be trusted with this, the garments come out super nice, better than hand washed!!! but I suppose it depends on your machine).
