Q&A with Cathri

CraftStash asked:
Great job! Seems like you had enough yarn to add in some extra sections!
Cathri answered:
Yes, in total I used 415 yards (380 metres) = 2 skeins of the Lotus Miya yarn.
Winster asked:
Hi Cathri, I luv your shawl!!! Did you add 2 repeats of the Star Stitch before the Nova Edging? Winni
Cathri answered:
Hallo Winster! Sorry for my late answer, I was on vacation. After the planet stitch I added 1 repeat of the plasma stitch and 1 repeat of the star stitch, then I ended with the nova edging. Best regards. Cathri
Dawne Martin asked:
This is a beautiful color. Trying to decide what color to do next by looking at completed projects. What yarn and color did you use?
Cathri answered:
Hello Dawne! I used a very soft blend of mink (70%), merino (20%) and silk, called Miya by lotus yarns. The colour is a deep burgundy red (07). It's 190 metres per 50 gram and I used 2 balls for this project. I really loved knitting this yarn because it is so soft and easy going. After washing and blocking it becomes even softer. You can hardly feel it around your shouders because it is so light. Good luck with your choice!
petita40 asked:
did you add more stiches?
Cathri answered:
Hallo Petita! No, after the increase row required by the pattern I nitted 3 rows, then I added the Star Stitch pattern (rows 1-12 and again rows 1-6), then I knittedf 4 rows and then I started with the Nova Edging. Best regards. Cathri
