Sea of Blues Shawl
I finished another project this weekend, I'm telling you - I am riding a knitting wave during these January days. This shawl was a fun knit and the kit was gifted to me by a knitting friend.
The wool was delightful to knit with and because it is DK weight, the project was a fast knit. I loved the squishy wool and the speed of the knitting.
The kit pattern mentioned that a few of the colors would be used up completely so of course I ran out of yarn in those two colors. I just used other colors and solved my yarn shortage problem. I ran out of the gray and the indigo. I still think it looks pretty good and no one would know.
What are you working on this week?
What a pretty shawl and how good that you were able to solve that yarn shortage. I am knitting a pink and green sweater, almost to the arm separating, and a pair of mittens. I was waiting on needles that finally arrived so I will get back to those.ReplyDelete
P.S. - did you change up your blog? I looks different. I am always thinking about changing mine.ReplyDelete
I changed the theme a few weeks ago to give it a fresh lookDelete
If you didn't say, I'd never know that the yarns you subbed were not a part of the kit. Your shawl is lovely.ReplyDelete
All the subbing was from the yarn kit just the yarns I had plenty ofDelete
That is so pretty. I would not have known you ran out of ant yarn. You did fantastic subbing the other colors.ReplyDelete
Your shawl is gorgeous, great job Karen! What's next? :)ReplyDelete
I was so looking forward to seeing this shawl Karen and it didn't disappoint. It is beautiful, a great shwl.ReplyDelete
Beautiful. No. You can't see that there was any adjustment to the colors. It looks great.ReplyDelete
Me? Knitting socks. Are you surprised? I'm still plugging away on the Arne and Carlos socks for Steve. I messed up the heel and had to start over.
The shawl is lovely. I'd never know you changed up the colors. I'm knitting on the purple sweater and some socks with the Habitation Throw for back-up.ReplyDelete
IT IS BEAUTIFUL. I THOUGHT IT WAS MEANT TO LOOK JUST THAT WAY. VERY NICE WORK.ReplyDelete
You are an amazingly fast knitter, and your projects are always beautiful! Love that shawl; it's a nice pattern.ReplyDelete
...those colours are so tranquil and soothing...a very pretty shawl...
~Have a lovely day!
I love the blues in your shawl! I am currently knitting a cowl scarf to match a hat I knitted last year. It's nearly complete! : )ReplyDelete
you did a fantastic job subbing in other yarns - the FO looks great! I'm working this week on socks for a friend who's having surgery tomorrow.ReplyDelete
The shawl is amazing! Well done by you. Stay safe.ReplyDelete
The blues are lovely in your shawl. Definitely spring and summer. And never mind on where'd you get your bujo supplies; I have perfectionist block and don't need to spend any more money on stuff until I get my act together.ReplyDelete
