|I always pose my shawls on my knitting chair!|
I really loved making this pattern - I think I finished it so quickly because it's one of those things I just didn't want to put down! It was really great for working on when I didn't want to think too much (like I have to with Miette). That said, I did miss a couple of increases so my stitch count was down by 4 at the end! Oh well!
|Lavender merino and charcoal merino/silk,|
both handspun fingering weight.
I steam blocked this shawl with my iron, like I usually do. Quick and easy! I pulled it more straight, rather than letting the edges curve, although they do curve a little.
I'm really happy with the way this turned out, and I'm pretty sure I'll make another at some point. It was so fast and easy, because although fingering weight yarn is used, it's done on US6 (4mm) needles, and since there's no lace there's not too much to keep track of.
If you'd like to make this shawl too, Evelyn at Project Stash has a KAL going on until May 31. And don't forget that the proceeds from the sale of this pattern go to helping the designer's daughter, who lost her home in a fire recently.
I know a few of you are making this already. Anybody else tempted?
