Famous last words right. My friend Bonnie and I were getting together at her house to do some machine knitting. No real plan in place. I decided to bring some yarn and a pattern I got at Stitches West. I knew Bonnie had bought the same yarn for the same pattern. Maybe she'd want to do the pattern with me? She did.
The next problem was just the yarn. Called Gene B its quite lovely in color and feel, but the texture is difficult to knit. Gene B is very slippery, clingy, knotty, splitty and not one of my favorite yarns. Gets caught on something nearly every row.
The pattern for the hand knit version can be found free on Newton's Website. It's called "Two Color Spiral Wedge Shawl." I got the machine knit pattern for free with yarn purchase. Contact Newton's I don't know if the machine knit version is free without purchase of some yarn.
