The Fern Garden Shawl

I just finished photographing this shawl, which is my newest finished object. I'll get some detail shots on the Flickr site in the next few days. It was one of the most fun things for me to knit, because I actually love nupps. My Eastern European grandmother taught me to knit when I was six or seven, and my default knitting style is "Eastern crossed-uncrossed." I twist the knit stitches and then un-twist when I purl back. Because I knit into the back leg of the stitch and purl into the front leg, nupps do not slow me down. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

  1. I MUST have this pattern--still salivating over it, more than a week after I first saw it. :-)
