Teaching at Noarootsi


This Sunday I went to teach at Noarootsi. I was invited by Helja, a fellow knitter who has her own firm and orders yarn to be made from the wool of the local sheep. She wanted me to talk to the local knitters about scarves.
I was thinking that there is nothing special to talk about because a scarf is a straight piece of fabric and not remarkable from the point of view of construction. I took several scarves with me and the discussion turned to various stitch patterns. We talked through and knitted several patterns, of which one was especially favoured by all, namely, simple and nice combination of mesh stitch and ribbing, described here in greater detail. 
I also made a small swatch from beautiful Kihnu wool (100 g/350 m) that Helja provided.
