I hand-dyed this skein planning to use it for colourwork but I was itching to cast on a shawl in this yarn. The pattern is a gift from SusanFromAthens during a Sundara swap. :)
12 Aug 2011: I am loving it so far. The yarn feels a bit rough but I know a good soak will sort that out. I am using the written instruction.
13 Aug 2011: Chart A finished. Started chart B using the chart. I also marked off the center garter stitch panel, at least I hope I have the markers in the right places!
27 Jul: Restarting this from cast on as I cannot read my stitches. Planning to add as many repeats of Chart B as my skein of yarn would allow.
29 Jul: 9 repeats of Chart B
2 Aug: 11 repeats of Chart B
19 Dec: 12 repeats of Chart B
2 Jan 2015: Phew! Done and dusted finally!
It was fun while it lasted but I am glad to finish this shawl. Seems like ages ago when I first had the desire to knit this complicated-looking shawl. Thanks to SusanfromAthens for the gift of the pattern :)
I struggled with the i-cord bind off and even thought of doing just a regular stretchy version but it looked untidy and out of place. So I persevered until I got the hang of it. Romi would be pleased to know it, I’m sure!
Blocking and photos will have to wait until we get back to Dubai.
