Like any skill or craft, I know how important it is to learn from others, and as I'm stretching myself with designing, I find that knitting the designs of those I admire helps me develop my own abilities.
|Astrid - fringe in cascade 220|
The scarf begins with a fringe of bobbles. It took me a few attempts before I figured out the proper way to make the bobbles, but once I did, I couldn't help smiling. Like magic, each turn of the needles with either a knit or a purl became a bobble and not only that, my fringe began to develop and grow. I couldn't quite get over it. So, while I'm making this little project, I feel like a magician's assistant, turning yarn into this incredible fringe.
