Today is the last day of February and that’s a little bonkers — how did this month go so quickly?? I’ve got one more finished object to share, my Mad Mini Wrap, and there was a bit of madness there at the end!
That final color, the green, was just for the border, and when I got to where the pattern told me to bind off, I still had quite a bit left. I didn’t want the yarn to go to waste so I added a few more rows. Sadly, I misjudged the amount and I was about 3/4 of the way through the bind-off when I admitted to myself that I didn’t have enough yarn and had to unknit the bind-off and the last row. It’s done now, though, blocked and everything. Blocking definitely helped this one get to a wearable length, though it’s still a tad shorter than I usually prefer. The pattern is the Mad Mini Wrap (Rav link) and I used the same yarn, same colors used in the original design, the 5 mini-skein pack of Mad Hatter Sport from Frabjous Fibers in Mice in the Tea. I found the yarn quite delightful, all supple and bouncy, and the colors are gorgeous.
I was hoping I’d get my sock done before the end of the month too, but spent too much time yesterday doing stuff around the house, preparing for some renovations. A necessary evil, I suppose, but today is for fun!
Love the colors! That green is the best, perfect spring color.
I know! That’s why I had to use as much as I could!
That is a really great shawl. I love the green.
Thanks! It is a really good green.
That is a great shawl! It is just your colors, and so bright and pretty for spring!
Thank you! Definitely my favorite colors, and it’ll go with so many things.
It’s so lovely, those berry colours with the green. It hangs nice and evenly which is great.
Thank you! It did end up with a very nice drape to it!
I love the way that shawl turned out! It’s always a sad day when we lose at yarn chicken, though.
