knitting of the Linen


lest you think we've not
been knitting here at the
home of the Knitting Companion,
i offer up some knit.

this is a humble swatch/sample
to see how this new linen (new to me)
knit up. This image shows the sample
un washed and yet unironed.
but i know you'll appreciate the cranberry
colour and the way the stitch detail pops.
the linen is
louet's Euroflax, fine/sport weight.

i had read that the linen
was now much softer than ever
before. and i can honestly tell
you that i was impressed
at how Unrough & un-linen-like
this yarn was to
work up this swatch.
