1  Freeform Shawl w/recycled yarn. First Picture post! (img heavy) in Knitting: Completed Projects by Zanna on: May 16, 2007 08:27:16 AM
I call her Zania

Hi guys, this is my first picture post.

I did this over a year ago before I really knew how to knit (all of the knit stitches are TWISTED KNIT stitches (not intentional),  and I dont believe my method of increasing is even a recognized technique.)  Over 80% of the yarn was recycled, because I realized that recycling yarn was way easier than actually learning how to knit (I just love handling fiber.)

I was inspired by Prudence Mapstones  freeform crochet.  I knit a multitude of individual feather/leaves, added crochet borders, then played with a layout that would fitsort of like putting a puzzle together.  

Its the first thing Ive ever created that is at all artisticIm a mountain athleteor was, now I know how to knit!

I can know knit a real knit stitch and even follow patterns!









Thanks for any input.  You all have been so inspiring to my knitting journey!
