What a lovely shawl! I vote no to the fringe- perfect as it is I say!

It's great stumbling across your blog as I've just started my first knitting project. Of course it's just a simple scarf. I know this is such a basic question but I have no idea what you do at the end when you've reached the desired length. Can you recommend anywhere online that has instructions as to how I would finish it?

Hey truffle,

casting off instructions can be found at the bottom of this page: http://spindling.com/knitting_instructions..html :) good luck!

Friinge is nice, but I don't think your piece needs it particularly. What do you think?

Hi. Just read your comment on my blog. Thank you. It's a good recipe forgot to add though splitting it into 8 gives child size burgers. You'd probably guess that anyway when doing it. I think no to the fringe on the shawl. I admire anyone who can knit or crochet. All the women in my family can do it except me.

I guess it's no fringe then :) I'm often not sure, sometimes fringe works... :) Thanks so much for your input everyone...

I vote....fringe...while it's beautiful...I think it needs a little more sass to it!! Just my opinion!! Btw, you do some FANTASTIC work!!

And just an fyi ~ virtually everything, with a couple exceptions ~ that I've posted on my blog as 'stuff I've made' is available at my ebay store... Link's at the top left of my blog.

Hi,

Thank you for calling at my blog and introducing me to yours. Yours is exquisite and industrious looking. I vote for no fringe on the shawl ‘cause I love it as it is. Please don’t knit a poncho. Have you ever seen a poncho in anyone’s wardrobe? Every knitting book features a poncho. Why?

Regards,
Coral

lol...

coralpoetry ~ quite true about the poncho thing. I've only seen 1 or 2 women wear these handknit ponchos, but not the full huge-body ones, rather ones that just cover the shoulders when they go out and wear something nice with it.

I've knit myself a camping poncho, because I'm always in the woods during the summer, and evenings tend to get cool, so my nice super-cozy poncho is awesomely warm. But I wouldn't wear it to the mall or to work or anything!

I love ponchos, too. My idea of a poncho is long and warm, and flowing. The little shoulder thing is kind of useless for me. I get COLD and need something long to keep me warm. I would wear my poncho anywhere. I also like capelets and capes, although I'm not dramatic enough to wear one yet.
