This project was a special treat for me. I love the color of this fiber, which is Hello Yarn fiber club April 2011, 4oz of Targhee, colorway Sprout.
I chain plied it, and got 312yds, with long color runs.
I paired it with some FatCatKnits variegated Merino, 2-ply.
And got this shawl. My only regret is, that I never got to the yellow part of the Sprout yarn, that would have been awesome!
pattern: Andrea shawl by Kirsten Kapur (purchased the pattern ages ago, and only now got to knitting it) This is a wonderful shawl to knit. You start with the outer edge border, and pick up stitches for the main body.
I had some trouble picking up stitches for the top edge. I did not get nearly as many stitches as the pattern called for, but it worked out alright. I also left the last three stitches of the main body on my needles, and when I picked up for the edge, I just knit them. I think this looks pretty neat as well. I had a hell of a time blocking this one.
This is also my shawl # 11 for this year!
I know, so many pictures, but I really like this one a lot.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend. We are having a long one, with Monday being a holiday.
