Finally, a finished object to show!
A few months ago, I was browsing ravelry and came across Stripe Study Shawl, and knew I wanted to knit it. As with so many patterns, I was at a loss to what yarn I could use. Then I saw it.
|Excuse the leggings, I had just finished crawling round the floor ;)|
Stripe Study Shawl
Yarn: Kauni Wool 8/2 Effektgarn EQ and Kauni Wool 8/2 Solid natural.
Needles: 4mm for main section, 5mm for cast-off.
Isn't it glorious? This is by far the most satisfying knit I've done in a while. I love the mittens I have done recently, but when I can't wear an FO straight away, I temporarily fall out of love with it. This pattern has given me a new appreciation for large shawls, and I'm now kicking myself for not buying more than 1 skein of sock yarn at a time.
The Kauni was everything I had read. The colour changes were so subtle you didn't realise you were in a new colour until you were there! The yarn was thin and weird looking before washing, but certainly fulled out post-washing when the spinning oils were removed.
As usual, I am joining in with Tamis Amis on FO Friday
