to say this is taking forever is an understatement - i'm knitting placemats and they're taking forever! it could be because its not actually knitting as such (which is of course quicker and doesn't require much concentration on my part - sorry, that did sound really smug.....) but this is a completely different stitch. its more like weaving the yarn backwards and forwards.
so, because its taking me so long, i thought i'd give you a little taster.
i'm using my usual elle pure gold double knit yarn in ivory and pepper (grey) which i think gives the placemats a kind of scandi feel.
the yarn - coupled with the stitch - has made the placemat incredibly soft yet sturdy at the same time. so after a bit of blocking and a bit of weaving the ends, we'll list these in our shops and of course at the we make pop up shop happening soon.
