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.
I cast on two days ago and I’m ready to start section four of six. Of course, the last three sections are quite a bit bigger than the first three, but still, it’s going quickly. 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!
Wow you’re very speedy with this shawl. It looks lovely!
I wish I could knit that fast!
Easy, just ignore all your other responsibilities! 😉
Ah that’s where I’ve been going wrong! I must stop silly things like work and laundry getting in the way of my knitting :p
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.
Agreed! It also looked a lot different than the photo online, but it’s still lovely.
I LOVE my imagine when! I knit it a couple of years ago in a dark grey alpaca. It is still my absolute go to when I need a scarf/shawl!
Oh yay! I might need to knit another one in colors I’ll wear more often then!
This is going to be a beauty 🥰
