like an ikat...

...but just in the knitted way!

I was trying to imitate the ikat-technique with a knit-print-combination. Knitting a chuncky double-bed piece on a 2 1/2 gg Dubied and afterwards printing on it with a fluorescent pink printing ink. Good idea - but it finally didn´t work that well, because of the double-bed-knitting. With a single bed-bit it may work better. Let´s try!
