A little what?
I have always love Sanquhar since the first pattern I saw: the Sanquhar cowl. The yarn I'm knitting with now was originally bought for that pattern, and maybe after I finish this I'll have to try the Sanquhar cowl again.
But for now, here's a little bit of Sanquhar:
here, but the TL:DR is that it is a style of knitting that emerged in the Nith valley of Scotland in the 17th century and it is really, really neat looking.
If the cowl is too much, I might try some Sanquhar gloves.
The shawl pattern is Study Hall and I'm using a cotton yarn that is 'gassed' that is no longer available (I think) from Elann. This is the best cotton yarn ever. I just googled gassed yarn and here is what I found:
Gassed yarn is
mercerized cotton yarn that has been exposed very rapidly to a hot gas
flame. This process removes any fuzz or excess lint on the thread. This
results in a brighter and smoother appearance. (more here, including what mercerized means).
And I have white and black alpaca yarn and that might be a great way to start my next Sanquhar project~
