A collection of oddities found in the closet of a most peculiar woman.
 

The Twisted Float Shrug








This was a Vogue pattern I found in the fall 2005 issue. I had no real idea how to knit then but I bought the magazine anyway. I asked for help from a few knitters but they were no help (I know too many people who aren't very helpful!!!) I had so many people tell me that they never heard of the decorative stitch that was used in this project: the twisted float garter stitch. So I waited and found some hats to make in the meanwhile. After the Christmas 2005 present making rush, I sat down and figured out the damn stitch. The twisted float garter stitch is where you knit with two contrasting yarns and alternate knitting stitches in the same row A B A B, and all the while you twist the two yarns together to make a neat 3D texture. So this is my first ever sweater I made. It was marked as the most difficult pattern to make in that magazine. It took me about 2 and a half months of fighting with the yarn and the circular needles but I did it!
