Last year a friend of mine, Christy, went back home to Amercia to visit her family. I asked her to get some wool for me that you can't get in Australia (well, I know I can buy wool on line but I like to feel what I'm buying). She brought this back for me. It's Ellyn Cooper's Yarn Sonnets Hand-Dyed Yarns, Peru (the colour is Chinese Poppy).
Anyway, I got 3 cotton hanks and I wasn't sure what to do with them. I came across this free pattern on Ravelry by Knit Fish called Sunday Market Shawl.
The cotton is nice it knit with in this heat. I'm a good way into knitting the shawl/wrap but it seems to curl up on itself on each side.
I'm deciding if I will continue because if it is still going to curl up on the sides, the finished product it is going to annoy me when I'm wearing it. I'll see when I drop the stitches (part of the pattern) on how it will sit. So, I'm at a standstill. I might put it on a stitch holder and try the same pattern with some Noro Silk Garden (yummy rainbow colours) that I bought a month ago down at Berry.
