Sl 2-k1-p2sso is not a character in Star Wars. It is a knitting expression that got my needles in a twist. But Virtuella came to the rescue (what she does not know about knitting is not worth knowing), and told me to take 2 stiches of knitwise, knit 1 and then lift the 2 stiches over. And that was the mystery with this shawl.
Jeg startet med et nøste for å se om jeg likte mønsteret. Det ble enda finere enn jeg forestilte meg, og to nøster til ble bestilt. Disse ble hurtig strikket opp, og så ble jeg litt stormannsgal og ville ha det til et kjempesjal. To nøster til. Da nøste fem var på pinnene, skjønte jeg endelig at jeg måtte stoppe i tide. Det er over to meter bredt og blir helt herlig til høsten. Jeg er superfornøyd :D
Man ser veldig godt at garnet er håndfarget og det er tydelige skiller. Men det har jeg bestemt meg for at er sjarmerende. Nemlig :)
I started of with one skein to see if I liked the pattern. It was even prettier than I imagined, and two more skeins were ordered. These were knitted easily up, and I got a little big headed and wanted it to be a gigant shawl. Two more skeins. When I was in the middle of skein five, I finally realized that it was time to quit. The shawl is over two meters wide and will be lovely for autum. I am really very pleased :D One can easily see that the yarn is handpainted and there are visible differences between the skeins. But I have decided that it is just charming :)
