tea time with tea leaves!

so i finally finished my shawlette! :)

which seemed like it took forrrrreverrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr to knit because of the wool being cobweb :/ looks great but a pain to knit with considering you have to practically double or quadruple the time which would normally take you to do something..

the stitch is your basic:

row 1: knit 1, yo k2tog and repeat
row 2: purl
row 3: ssk, yo ssk and repeat..
row 4: purl

but here’s my low-down ;)

basically i started off with 3 stiches

adding 2 new stitches per row (1 in the beginning of the row and 1 at the end) until i had about 200 stitches! and YES!! my wrists were like, “what the h** are you doing to us?” :P

then from there, i decreased every row so the whole scarf/shawlette looks like one huge diamond!!!

anyways needless to say, time to celebrate tea time with the dolls!
