Solomon's Knot

This week I taught myself the "Solomon's Knot" stitch, or "Love Knot".  I have been wanting to learn to do this for quite some time, and since I was in between projects this week I jumped at the chance to teach myself!  How fun and how easy!


With about five minutes of practice I was off and running.


Isn't it pretty!  The perfect compliment to ribbon, which I have a little stash of.
I whipped this little wrap up so quickly I did another out of a finer ribbon, and made it larger.
It was hard to get a good picture of this to do the ribbon justice.  It really turned out to be very pretty, and draped over black is stunning.

I also think these are pretty wrapped around the neck.
Like? 

This is about it for the week.  I did start a new project, a poncho, which I am writing a pattern for and an excited about!  A little sneaky peak of my progress so far....

This is pure yarn heaven for me, color, color, color!  And the texture of that garter stitch.  Yuuummm.....yum!

I'm off for now!  It's a beautiful morning here in Carolina!  Looking forward to some outside time before the rain gets here.

Toodles!

Those are beautiful! Nice job Dawn.

The colors on the poncho are fabulous also. So bright and cheery! Anyone would feel good being wrapped around all the color.

Thanks for sharing the information about the new stitch, I'm hoping to also learn it too. Nice to know it's easy to learn. Thanks!

Also I think I recognize that poncho, it's the one that reminded me of the Mexican poncho(I called it). Right? The one that has tied laces up the back I think.

Thanks for sharing.

Anonymous, Yes, you are right. This will be very similar to that one. Not as long! I have had requests for the pattern.
