|Anna Devries's Dreambird find her on Ravlery|
Being a self taught knitter, I thrive on learning new techniques, but I have a thing about having to teach myself! So, I bought the pattern online, which is typically a no-no for me, I usually work off of free patterns, but this is a gorgeous pattern and Nadita deserves credit and payment.
Last night sat down to conquer my first attempt at "swing" knitting.
I will admit that at one point I was lost! The pattern was orginially written in German and has been translated into several languages, so it is a bit difficult to follow Nadita's explanation at times. I managed to get just about to the end of the first feather before saying, "UH!?!?" and went to bed. After a good night's sleep this morning it was crystal clear what she was saying to do and TA- DA! the first feather is finished. The feathers will gradually become grayer and grayer.
Sadly, I have two shawls waiting to be completed but I just had to start this THIRD!
