I'm a late bloomer in the feather&fan department. Yes, I know this stitch has been in existence since the dinosaurs but I, well, I'm slow about these things. I only just discovered it and now I'm addicted. The picture below is of a free-range organic capelet that just sort of grew on my needles. Reminds me of a mushroom or something.
Thanks, everyone. I'm a bit obsessive about knitting (anyone here not??) so I just keep knitting and experimenting until something looks okay. Most of the time I don't really start out with a plan, only a vague idea and plenty of inspiration.
