Twisty Fringe

After a very hectic week at work doing year-end closing tasks, I snoozed through an old movie, then went to bed for a long sleep. I woke several times during the night with knitting ideas.

This morning, John encouraged me to write them down.  One of them involved a twisted fringe.  I had been thinking about twisted fringe a while.  I like the looks of fringe, but it tends to get frayed quickly, and I don't like to use a finish on my knitted work that is bound to look scruffy soon.  Generally, twisted fringe holds up better that cut fringe.

I tried knitting it this morning and wasn't crazy about the original idea, but after a few tries, came up with this sample.  I have found an easy way to do this.  Here's a macro shot of my "play" sample, warts and all, made on  my mid-gauge.  Maybe I'll make a video.
