Follow up to last post:
For those of you wondering what-the-bleep handknitted wool curtains look like (!), here they are, Eucalaned and clean.
They're also still damp--I am using gravity to block them.
I made them from lace-weight red wool yarn and used the Dainty Chevron and Daintier Chevron patterns from Barbara Walker's A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns. Because of the color, it's sort of a Spanish lace look.
It is a bit like knitting a very, very, very long scarf.
I would have knit them longer, but my birding husband did not want his view of the bird feeders obscured. Hence the little, tiny valence on the large picture window. (Ah, the compromises of marriage!)
