I finished my Zuni Shawl yesterday morning. Here it is:
I steamed this rather than blocking it out. I did two extra repeats on each side of the center and have ended up with a shawl that has a 56″ wingspan and measures 21″ down the center back.
This time I remembered to weigh my skein before I started knitting, so was able to use as much of my yarn as possible. Here’s what I had left:
I had 18 grams of my 160-gram skein of Aade Lõng Artistic 8/2 left over. I knit this piece on a U.S. size 3 (3.25mm) needle. It’s an easy knit — you need only know how to knit, purl, bind off, and cast on stitches at the end of a row (via a cable cast-on, for example). Oh, and you have to be able to count.
The pattern, available here, is very well-written and easy to follow. It is completely written out (no charts — none are really needed).
I’d say an adventuresome beginner could knit this without difficulty.
After finished Zuni, I started knitting a two-color design, but simply was not feeling the love. I didn’t like the way it was turning out when I knit it as written, so I ripped back and tried several variations before deciding it was not to be.
So I started knitting something else. Here’s the start of it:
Can you guess what this is?
Meanwhile, Lucy is considering making a leap.
