Midsummer

Despite the KAL is now finished for the Goddess Knits Mystery stole 3, I've just come to the end of clue 2 and about to start clue 3 so I thought I would just put a photo up to show the progress, plus I don't think the pattern on the Goddess Knits site doesn't really show the lovely beginning pattern up...

That really is beautiful! I've never done any of those shawls. After seeing yours I may have to consider it! Quite lovely!

Scroll down to the Norwegian Purl video.



I had to watch it maybe twenty times before I got it. It’s cool!



It’s very useful for doing purl stitches where you want to leave the yarn in back, as in the knit stitch.



For example:



The first purl stitch on a new needle when knitting in the round. Easier to tighten when the yarn is in the back.



A purl, followed by a yarnover (Norwegian purl makes a smaller hole)
