Today’s Fibre Friday post is a little late, because I needed to wait for some light to take pictures. We had snow, so that made a good backdrop, but it wasn’t sunny yet so the colours are a bit dull compared to real life.
I talked about this shawl last week, and here’s the picture of it in progress with the skeins again:
I did use the progression at the lower right corner, as planned. You can see that the lace pattern is bunched up. I knew it would blossom when it was blocked, and wow, I was right.
The blocked shawl is over a meter deep. I really like the colour gradation in it. I was worried about the fifth colour, that it might be too inky, but IRL it picks up the rosy and inky tones of #4.
As mentioned before, I decided against the fringed edge and tried to use up all the yarn instead in the shawl. I knit the last four rows with the first colour, then did an I-cord bind-off with it.
Here’s a close-up of that lace pattern:
What do you think?
