Yesterday because I had all this spare time with no electricity in the house and I have my studio back visitors all gone home after the holidays. I knitted a sample ruffle on my knitting machine. Different yarn different color but sort of the same feel to it. Just a test to see how it would look. Casted on 20 stitches with a 3 stitch short row with 4 rows of knitting in between.
On the machine it took me about an hour, boy I love my knitting machines! For some things they are just great! This is what the short rowed ruffle would look like:
And this is what the "potato chip" pick up stitches and increase every other stitch would look like, hand knit no machine. This method would take much longer and a lot of stitches are involved.
Because I don't like to waste knitting I finished this short rowed scarf with a little crochet edge and now it kind of looks good as a scarf. I will wear it today to my LA/SFV machine knitters meeting. I'm not quite sure what the acronym stands for.
Which look do you prefer?
