stuff and nonsense



Gentle section blocked | The view from where I type.



"
Two rows of garter at the end of every row" indeed...sometimes obduracy pays off;
rather than rip and work a garter border (which to my mind seemed an incongruously heavy resolution of an essentially airy piece), I stubbornly blocked a section of Gentle to see what would happen.

I think it's absolutely fine.

To paraphrase Ashley & knitting philistine; all part of its inherent undulating charm... thanks gels*!

* That's with a hard 'g' as in golly gosh, St Trinians, jolly hockey sticks and all that...
not the stuff we used to put in our hair in the 80's... or was that just me?

A garter stitch edge would be a bit clunky - I think this looks great as is.

Frog? Rip? Block? I have no idea what you're talking about on this blog most of the time, but I keep reading more, and I think Gentle (G like Gillian Welch?)looks lovely!
