Faroe Knitting

the place to buy Faroese wool!

Sirri Fashion Show November 2013

I have been to Sirri’s fashion show, and I think my favourite is the black see through dress.

Chrocheting Hexagons

Seven red, chrocheted hexagons.

Yarn is Sirri 2-ply, and the colours are C12, C15 and C106.

And I used this Hexagon How-to. The hexagons are joined as you go, which is new to me. I usually make a whole bunch of granny squares and then spend days laying them out in different patterns planning how to join them.

The Winner

Today I finished the shawl. Yes, most of you guessed right, I was knitting a Faroese shawl.

16 comments came in, so I wrote the numbers 1 to 16 on a paper, cut them out and placed them in a small bowl. Mixed well, covered my eyes and pulled… nr. 3.

Congratulations to Janicke Leckang, you have won the yarn.

Please, send your address to hanne@faroeknitting.com.

And here is the shawl. I will have to knit one more very soon while I still remember how to do it. I used the pattern in the book 215 Shawl Designs by Olivia Joensen. It has the basic shawl pattern in Faroese, Danish and English, but the book is sold out. We are so lucky as to have two copies at the library where I work.

At this point point in the process I almost gave up. there are so many stitches and I kept making mistakes in the lace pattern. Here I am trying to get an overview by using two circular needles.
The yarn is Sirri 2-ply, and the colour is C2

C102 is back in stock

Multicolour C102 is 2-ply and in 200 gram hanks.

There are no wrong answers, so everybody has a chance. The giveaway is open until I have finished the project, and let me just tell you it has been unravelled more than once.
