Talk About Big Knits!

Posted by Caroline Hershey

At the Woodsedge Fiber Festival, Dan and I had the pleasure of beingBig Knit shawl located right across from Becca and her Mom of the BagSmith. After watching them demonstrate the Big Knit shawl frontBIGGGG knitting all weekend, I finally succumbed and purchased some size 50 !!! knitting needles. I could not imagine anything so big. But there they were and I must say I circled them for a week or so after returning home from the show, not exactly knowing what I would do with them. And then I started knitting and within a couple hours I had this shawl.

I pulled about 8 yarns from my stash – some ribbon, some boucle, some thick and thin, whatever I had – and knitted away. The needles were a little awkward at first, but after I found the position that worked for me, I was flying. What a great idea! Because of our anticipated move, we do not have a supply of these in the shop, but would be happy to special order them for you. Just email or call us.

Just to advise you that the above order arrived safely (in France!). I'm thrilled both with my order and the speed with which it arrived. I hope to do business with you again! Thank you very much!
