Sometimes I think that patterns should come with more specific designations. *More counting, less chatting or *Save the glass of wine for after the AT THE SAME TIME directions. When I was at home sick for almost a week, this was the only pattern I felt I could work on knowing that I wouldn't make any unfixable mistakes. I tried to cast-on for a pair of 2-at-a-time socks at first and it was a total disaster. This pattern was *Safe to knit while ill.
Pattern: Feather and Fan Comfort Shawl
Size: Embiggened Yarn: 2ply handspun polwarth/mixed bfl/silk from three waters farm
Needles: 10 or 10.5 circs. i'm not really sure.
Started: March 9, Finished: March 15
I knit until I ran out of yarn. I only had a few inches left. I didn't measure the shawl but it's pretty large. I couldn't decide the entire time while I was knitting whether the yarn was butt-ugly or if it was nice. I combined 2 different colorways and I'm surprised how the bright colors dominated and how stripey it looks. If you look closely the yarn has a mottled appearance. In the end I think it is kind of pretty. The finished yarn has a nice drape and it blocked beautifully.
This is a gift shawl. it'll be tucked away until the appropriate time.
