Wrap yourself in silky elegance with the Trufa shawl. Made from just two supple skeins of Manos Serena, this shawl works up quickly and beautifully, making it a perfect gift for any time of year. Yarn and pattern included!
This REALLY helps prevent having to weave in ends. If I need to keep track of How many skeins I have used, I leave a small tuft out. Until after I have washed it, then I tug slightly, trim and stretch the fabric to tuck the tail back in! Excellent idea - great for striped blankets!
I had been doing it BACKWARDS! ("Slip the first stitch" will not get you this, sadly.) "How To Knit a Neat Selvage." Knit to the *LAST" stitch of each row and bring the yarn FORWARD BEFORE slipping it. The result resembles a line of knit stitches running up the side of the piece, not unlike a bound-off edge. Perfect for the top of a rotated slipper, or for stitches to be picked up later.
