Notes

Need something to get some spring colours into my live, so I bought the pattern and decided this will be my Easter Shawl.

April 1, 2018

Finished section one in Limone and brownish grey, started section two in turquoise merino and and blue-ish grey from Lana Grossa Meileinweit Bamboo.

April 2, 2018

Finished section 2, started section 3 with the blue degradé Merino.

April 15, 2018

Gnaaa- one should read the pattern properly…. I misread the instructions for section 1, decreasing part, which is why mine is way longer than it should be.

Well, so this will be huge. And a bit bumpy. But it is still wearable and I think I can block out the bumps, so off we go.

Started section 4 today.

Got this out of hibernation after the summer break, will go ahead with part 4. Will probably not have enough of the greenish merino yarn to finish this. Nevertheless, this is quite fun to knit!

September 9, 2018

Finished part 4 and it is huuuuge already. So I will skip part 5 and 6 and just add a last baktus-like triangle to the side where parts 4, 1 and 3 join- we will see how that will work.

Will do k to 4 stitches before end, k2tg, k1, sl1wyif in right side rows and k2, ssk, knit to 1 stitch before the end, sl1wyif for wrong side rows.

Wow, that went quicker than expected - it is now bathed and blocking and it looks as if the bumpy parts due to my mistake can be blocked out quite well.
