All the Shawls

Well, it didn’t take me long to accrue a nice collection of WIPs! Somehow I’ve ended up with four shawls on my needles, all fingering weight one-skein projects. That really is my favorite type of project, apart from socks, of course. My newest shawl is using Joji Locatelli’s pattern Imagine When and a gorgeous new skein of Manos del Uruguay. It’s a new yarn called Alma and my color is called Resistance.

And darned if I’m not starting to like short rows! They’re not as fiddly as they used to be, and the wedges they can create are super fun.

The picots on the side are fun too! I like doing picots better this way than in a picot bindoff for sure. This is shaping up to be an addictive knit!

  1. I love short rows! They can be used so creatively. That looks like a lovely yarn, but wow! It gives a very different impression in the skein than knit up. It’s a lot darker in tone overall than I had expected.
