In progress. (Chiengora article 2 of 4)

I’m knitting the thick & thin two ply chiengora into a simple garter stitch triangular shawl.  Unlike the other shawl featured, “Handspun Knitted Shawl”, this one starts at the center back at the neck and the “live knitting” continues down the sides.  (I’ll post the pattern later.)  This is a great choice for any hand spun.  It creates a chevron (diagonal patterns) across the back which highlights variances in the yarn. 

I hope to finish the shawl today.  Afterwhich, I’ll clean it (the dog hair was spun without cleaning first which helps hold the short stapled fiber together), full it, and block it by laying it out to dry.  More later.
