Kauni yarn

Well I have bene doing loads of research into yarns form the Baltic area and this one struck my fancy ,so ordered from Igla Leja look at these colours to come as I knit.It is a fingering weight and has a lovely Shetland type feel to it.I have decided to do a simple stitch which gives alovely woven appearance to the work

3.75mm needles cast on 39 stitches

Row 1 RS   K1 *SL1 wyif,K1  rep to end

Row 2 WS K1 P1*SL1 wyib,P1 rep from * last stitch K1

love this effect and have used it in a softer yarn before,people never believe it is knitting not weaving ,so there you go, think I will take this as my onboard knitting.
