I knit this Feather and Fan Comfort shawl for my Nana’s upcoming birthday. It’s a smorgasboard of yarn from my bag. There’s some worsted wool, some acrylic, some cotton, and some handspun Chilean wool as wool (beautiful but persnickity to work with).
It was a fun pattern, as to the color scheme…wellll…I really didn’t plan ahead. I just grabbed another ball that looked sorta kinda like it complimented the last and just kept knitting. In retrospect I should have had it planned out–live and learn.
I also did a crochet edging for the first time–never crocheted before. Not so sure about the edging. I’m left-handed and found the crochet movement very awkward. I also may have been crocheting backwards/upside down/inside out…who knows.
ANYWAY–finally–I need your opinions: To Fringe Or Not To Fringe? What do you think? Should I add fringe to the bottom or leave it as is?
PS–not blocked yet. If anyone has advice on repelling some of the dog hair I’d love it. The thing is like a shedding magnet and I want it to be clean. As soon as it’s blocked and cleaned I’m gonna wrap it and seal that sucka!
