Project Description

What was your source for this knitting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo HeartStrings #A63 Triangles within Triangles Shawl Link to website or photo www.heartstringsfiberarts.com/a63.shtm What are you most proud of? Take this on-line class from the convenience of your home. Youll have 6 weeks to practice, ask questions, share your progress and learn at your own pace. Just connect your computer to the internet, and the class and Discussion Board are there, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. What advice would you give someone starting this project? This class consists of three lessons: In Lesson-1 we will start our shawls at the center back neckline, thereby allowing us to practice lace knitting on just a few stitches and learn to read a lace chart. In Lesson-2, we will focus on tips and tricks for making our lace knitting a satisfying experience. As the shawls widen, the number of stitches increases, so this will be a good time to discuss things to do to help avoid mistakes in the first place, and then cover what to do to get back on track if they do. In Lesson-3, we will learn to bind off in a lace edging, and how to block lace to release its stunning beauty. To take this class, you should be comfortable with these basics of knitting: cast on, knit, purl, yarn over, increasing (make a stitch), decreasing (ssk, k2tog) and slip stitch.

Q&A with JackieES

Yknitsncrochet2 asked:
Beatutiful!!!! I love the colors.
JackieES answered:
The colors. Those beautiful colors are thanks to my friend Margaret Pittman of Heritage Handwovens who has unfortunately retired from dyeing yarn. I have several things I've made in her dyed yarns. She could dye such vivid, dramatic colorways!
