A miracle happened when I knit this shawl. I didn't get bored! correction: i didn't get too bored. I don't think that i made it through all 4 inches of the border, but there's at least a respectable 3 1/2".
Pattern: Stripe Study Shawl (rav)
Yarn: Malabrigo Sock in Black and Natural, 1 skein each
Needles: US #6 hiya hiya sharp interchangeables
Started: July 5 2014, Finished: July 19 2014
I only had enough yarn to do 11 CC stripes. The pattern doesn't start with a garter tab but i really wish it did. the lack of a perfectly clean beginning bugs me a bit. i used jeny's surprisingly stretchy bind-off. as with other garter shawls, i did not see the point to aggressively blocking it so i just soaked and laid it out flat to dry.
As I kept arranging and rearranging this shawl for the photoshoot, i realized that i have no clue how to wear asymmetrical shawls like this one. the point seems to want to be off to the side and it's kind of weird. that is all.
i could actually see myself knitting another one of these someday. but i probably won't. part of my Q3 FAL goals, yo.
