My Annis shawl is finished and blocked.
I’m mostly happy with it, though I’m wondering how much the long edges are going to curl with wear. Only time will tell. However, the pattern was easy to follow, and other than operator error, it went swimmingly.
It took 55g of my 2ply handspun, or approximately 285 metres. I have a fair bit of the yarn left over, but for now it’ll just go back into the stash.
I’m looking forward to testing out the shawl to see if this is a shape I like. I’m starting to have the feeling that I really need a deep shawl for the way that I wear them, but only time will tell. If nothing else, I’ll know whether I not I should be queueing more crescent shawls!
The WIP department
My Miralda’s shawl (Knitted Lace of Estonia) saw lots of love this week. In fact, it was about the only project that saw any love (unless you count buying buttons for my cardi).
My first skein of Malabrigo lace is starting to dwindle and I’ll soon be on to the second skein. I’m really loving this, and I’m just going to go with that feeling and knit on it to my heart’s content (knitting time permitting).
