This will be a sample for the yarn at Fadenliebe, the one and only LYS in town.

Done! Still needs blocking, but it’s finished!

6th repeat done. 22 grams left. Only need about half a pattern repeat and then off to the border I go. If I run out of yarn, I have a second skein. Wheee!


5th repeat done. 30 grams left. I will probably knit the 6th repeat until I reach the transfer point for the border and then weigh the cake. Best case, I can keep on knitting up to the transfer point of the 7th repeat. If not, I’ll add the border after the 6th repeat.

Halfway through the 3rd repeat. This one knits up so fast, it’s ridiculous. And it already looks wonderful!

Started today. I had to make a mini swatch from other yarn yesterday to find out if I grok the pattern. That was a good idea. I’m on row 13 now.
My plan is to knit up one skein, then look how big the shawl is and decide whether to add the 2nd skein or not. I only wound one skein, just in case.
