It’s finally done! I think this is one of the quickest spinning projects I’ve ever done. I’ve loved the pattern since I first saw it, but I never felt comfortable enough to try ‘true lace’. Now that I’ve done it though, I feel as though true lace is so much more fun than regular lace projects. Knitting shawls and scarfs is such a bore when you’re plowing through the neverending purls on the wrong side of the project.. ugh.
I love the pattern and I love how the yarn turned out. The pattern called for a heavier weight yarn, but I think it worked out just fine in the end 🙂
I tried to snap some artsy pictures, but I’m not sure about my artistic photography skills. Maybe I should just stick to the normal kind of pictures I snap. I do love the sky behind this picture.
I know triangular, lacey shawls don’t usually work well with variegated or mutli-colored yarns, but I think I’m willing to make an exception for this project. I’m probably biased because this project is ‘my baby’, and it probably really doesn’t look all that good. I’m willing to ignore that though (sorry :)).
I’m a newbie dyer myself and I honestly love the color and blend of these rolags (see previous post). Now that it’s all spun and knitted up it reminds me of the sky and clouds. I think this shawl really represents this summer for me, and I think I’ll wear it a lot this fall/ winter 🙂
I really love this pattern, and I’m sure I’ll try knitting another one as well. It’s a very interesting pattern and the lace is not all that scary at all. Just make sure you really read the instructions 🙂
