Q&A with Frances Tornese

mqxmary asked:
nice the blue and white really pops
Frances Tornese answered:
Thanks. I just used what I had around the hiuse. I just ordered the yarn or the cowl.
Tobytomkitten asked:
Lovely even knitting. Beautiful work.
Frances Tornese answered:
Thanks. I finished the cowl and I am designing a hat . I was lucky to be able to take a workshop given by Alasdair at Woolbearers in NJ. I love the very warm hats and scarves I can make by double knitting.
neenkster asked:
this looks great :) i'm really interested in double knitting, but I'll try to finish a few of my other Craftsy clsses first,hehe!
Frances Tornese answered:
I know what you mean. I have bought a lot of classes when they were on sale. Now I am starting to work my way through them.
EHensl asked:
So even! Very nicely done!
Frances Tornese answered:
Thanks. Now I am working on the cowl. So far so good. It's going to take me awhile to finish it. Going slowly to prevent mistakes.
anaisabel1127570 asked:
lindo de mais mas muito caro
Frances Tornese answered:
Yes, it is more expensive, but it makes very very warm hats, cowls and scarves. I don't think I will ever make garments in double knit. Headbands, scarves, smokrings and hats are all I think I'll double knit.
