This shawl, you guys, this shawl... Wow. It's been a long time coming - I cast on in the summer of 2012!
I wanted something complicated as a contrast to a garter stitch project I had started at the same time, and complicated is truly what I got. That edging was no walk in the park! I had not one, but two lifelines in
my knitting until that edging was done, and I needed them both on a
couple of occasions... In contrast, the main body was done in three
intensive knitting days.
It's big and airy, with incredibly open lace, a challenging edging and a much
easier main body. I loved this project even though it had many long rests. Tricky thing to photograph too, I can't seem to get the colour right in any of my pictures. It's darker and less pink than in the pictures below.
I did a few modifications to the pattern, but I won't bore you with it here. Have a look at my Ravelry page for the details.
Post-blocking measurements: 85 cm from neck to corner, 170 cm across. Bigger than anticipated, and I still feel like I could stretch it just a
little bit more. Blocked to a round-ish triangle. Love the result! :)
So many projects, so little time. At any given time I'm halfway through at least three different projects. Finishing them all is a different story...
You'll find a mixture of cards, scrapbooking and yarn related projects around here, sometimes a lot and sometimes not.
