I love making shawls. Love love love. So thoroughly satisfying and a practical use of 2 skeins of 'nice' merino & silk yarn. And it doesn't taking freaking forever to finish!
I go through cycles, probably like other knitters. T-G ! I'm over the dishcloth period. Still - technically - in the bear-sweater period, as I have a new, naked bear, awaiting his cabled & seed stitch sweater. A charity auction project, goes with the blanket already started, a violet-purple cotton blend.
A lovely pattern, love the yarn. A beautiful teal green. I did 9-11-9 repeats (9-increases 11-center 9-decreases); unblocked was 9”x65”, after light blocking 10”x77”. Just enough left of the 3rd ball, I could have done one more center repeat. Cotton/hemp has a nice drape, though a little color bleeding when I got it wet for blocking. Great weight for hot weather climates…hope to wear this all winter.
