I was feeling a bit under the weather on the weekend and spent many an hour catching up on podcasts and knitting. As it became dark and thoughts turned to Sunday night dinner I cast off the final stitches of my henslowe.
I am so glad I finally knit this pattern after it sitting in my queue for quite a few months. The pattern was quite clever,without being overly complicated. I learnt a few new tricks such as a new cast off method, and how to knit a picot edging.
The Berry Colorful Yarnings fingering merino superwash was just lovely to knit with and blocked beautifully. The subtle colour variation was just what I was after for this shawl - just enough variation to keep it interesting without distracting from the pattern. I used just over one skein for this shawl and am now starting to ponder if I would like matching mittens or fingerless gloves or do I save it for a striped scarf? What do you think it should be?
