Notes

I hadn’t planned on doing this shawl because I didn’t have 3 colors which I felt worked well together. I picked up these three skeins thinking I was going to put two of them together in a shawl. When I placed them on the counter, I couldn’t believe how well they worked together - a lucky accident.

Summary

  • Pre-blocked gauge: 26 stitches / 4 inches
  • Remaining yarn: Fig: 48 grams; Earl Grey: 64 grams; Cousteau: 74 grams.

Journal

2011-11-13: Starting weights: cousteau - 114gr; earl grey - 110gr; fig - 110gr. Completed Section 1.

2011-11-14: Completed sections 2 & 3.

2011-11-15: Completed another section 2.

2011-11-16: Completed color section 3. Counted stitches and I’m off by a total of 6. My number of rows counts out correct and I didn’t see any obvious increase misses. I’m going to add increases in the three garter ridges to get my count correct in preparation for the stranded border.

2011-11-18: Completed final border & bound off.

Summary

  • Pre-blocked gauge: 26 stitches / 4 inches
  • Remaining yarn: Fig: 48 grams; Earl Grey: 64 grams; Cousteau: 74 grams.

Next Time

  • Border: 3 garter ridges color C; 1 garter ridge color B; 1 garter ridge color C; intarsia rows; 1 garter ridge color C; 1 garter ridge color B; 3 garter ridges color C.
