Autumn Shawl Finished
I finished my October Shawl on the first of December. The Nae pattern was a delight to knit up. My sister questioned whether all that stockinette would be boring, well I found it captivating (as long as I was watching TV or talking to someone). I might knit this pattern up again with a tonal yarn.
It seems that my yarn purchasing habits have changed over the years and short color changes are not what I am interested in anymore, maybe big chunks of color changes.
I wore this all day yesterday and the bamboo content is wonderful. There's a bit of sheen and a lovely soft drape-iness that is perfection. This shawl can easily be a multi seasonal wear. Love that.
My only modifications were to not increase to 100 stitches in the stockinette area for fear of not having enough yarn and doubling the seed stitch area in the middle.
