“Turbo” Art Yarn Collars

My hand-carded, hand-spun art yarn — knit with circular Skacel “turbo finish brass tipped” needles.  It took me five tries to figure out how I wanted to do this.   The stitch is very lacy and stretchy, and highlights the kinetic, thick-and-thin, twisty (turbo!) nature of the yarn.  These samples show how two small skeins look when each was knit and embellished with some hand-dyed habotai silk ribbons.
