Bohemian Shawl Fringes

My daughter wished to have fringes to this shawl. I had to order more yarn as fringes need many yards of wool. They need as well many hours work, almost as many hours as to knit the shawl! 

For how to make fringes, you can find the tutorial HERE.

On the pictures you can see a bag I had sewn with a lovely fabric designed by Anna Maria Horner.
When knitting I like to store my yarns in a color matching bag!

  2. Love the colours but do you really make a matching bag for every item you knit.Do you give the bag also to the person you make them for. Lovely

    1. Thanks! No, I don't make a matching bag for every item I knit, but most of the time I find one among all the bags I have sewn in the past... and sometimes I offer the bag!

  5. The fringe is beautiful, and will make the shawl that much more Bohemian. I didn't know it took so much yarn or time! It is a very pretty bag too. I'm sure you smile every time you pull out a ball of yarn from it.
