Back in the Saddles Again ...

FLAK Part 3 ("Let's Knit Some Saddles")

My saddles are now complete. The finished length of each is 5" and the width is 2". If I was knitting the saddles again I would knit both saddles at the time on the same needles but pull the wool from 2 separate balls. This is another excellent tip from Ann in Webster, NY.

But wait, I forgot, I am knitting the saddles again. I ordered additional yarn to make a FLAK sweater for the hubby :)

Thanks Terri! I tried to email you back, but I couldn't find your email address. I've been following your flak progress, yours is looking
great. I'm still in the swatching stage. Can I ask why you unballed
all of your yarn and washed it first? I have not heard of doing that before and I'm intrigued.

Your saddles look great. Mine are flat - but remind me of the labryinth look I love so I am leaving them that way. After I washed my Cascade 220 it bloomed and the cables popped up. Waiting for them to dry was hard.
