Somehow these holidays are all about knitting, but not so much about blogging or taking pictures of my finished items. There are soooo many FOs that are being used already, but I'm yet to take pictures of them.
I started this back in February, and I hoped to get it done for summer to use it as a nursing shawl. Well, I did finish it this summer. It is a nice, wide and long shawl. I love how the stitches opened up after blocking.
The first half of it went quite fast, but then all those repeats got a bit tedious and I found those cute baby items to be more interesting and - obviously - faster knits. I'd come back to this shawl, though, and try knitting a few rows here and there. And finally I did come to the finish line.
Yarn: Skeinny Dipping fingering weight by Christine. I love this yellow. It has just the right combination of yellow and orange to it. Perfect. I don't quite feel that my pictures make justice to this hand-dyed yarn.
Needles: 3.5 mms
Notes: I love this pattern and this shawl and dream of knitting another one. However, I'm not sure how realistic that'd be. I loved knitting it despite the endless repeats, I love how it fits, I love the fact that it's huge and I would so much want another one.
I hope to be back soon with some more FOs and not only a wordless WIP Wednesday post.
