Ready to start----again
Hi all. I am new to this group. The first thing I have to say is what a great book. It has so many good patterns!! From very simple to more advanced, it is for everyone!
Here is the linen I purchased for the Moss Grid hand towels. I began them last week but had to frog....I usually am 'right on' gauge-wise but the 5's seemed too loose for may taste, maybe it is just a linen-thing. Did anyone else find it looked better with a 4? I have never worked with linen before...does the stitch definition tighten up when washed? Would love to know before I start off with the 4's.
I am very inspired with all the photos in this KAL and cannot wait to add some finished photos of my own!
If I were you, I would swatch and wash the swatch to see if I like it before doing the whole thing.
Thanks for all the help guys!
hope to have photos soon.
