An Amazing Knitting Project–Almost Done!

image

It has been a long time since the did the knitting on this project.  I am finishing it now. I knit the final row which is a combination of knitting and binding off.

image

The next step was to cut the tube open between the first and last stitch on the needle.

image

I have cut the tube open the entire length.

image

I have removed the knitting needle in preparation for dropping the loops that I didn’t bind off.

image

I have started to unravel the fringe one end of the shawl and one of the dropped stitch columns.

image

All the stitches that needed to be unraveled have been now.

This is a close up after I have unraveled the fringe and an open area.

You can see how curly and kinky the yarn is.

When I block this it will straighten the yarns and fringe and also make the entire shawl longer.

It will take me a while to do this as we had a new well pump put in two weeks ago and the water is still spitting iron and magnesium particles.

Stay tuned!

I made one of these shawls once, but straight, not a tube, and it as SO fun making it 'run'! Love this yarn, the colors are yummy.
