And, it is pink. 🙂
As you can see, I am more than halfway done with this wrap. The marker in the middle of the piece shows the halfway mark. Here’s a close-up of the edging:
As you can see from this photo, the edge features ruffles and a little bit of fagoting. I do like the addition of the fagoting — it nicely separates the ruffle from the body of the piece. This is a narrower ruffle than the one I used on Ruffles and Ridges. The Ruffles and Ridges ruffle was more part of the shawl as a whole — this one I wanted to be a clear edging.
I’m using my favorite U.S. size 3 needle and the yarn is Kauni Effektgarn, in the EE colorway:
This was a skein marked 150 grams that weighed in pretty darn close — 149 grams. 150 grams is 660 yards, and I’ll not be using all of that. I’m betting I’ll have around 100 yards leftover. So I’m thinking about turniong around and knitting another one using Wollmeise sock yarn as soon as I complete this one. I’m betting that a 575-yard skein of Wollmeise will be just right. I must remember to take a look in the stash room at the Wollmeise Wall of Shame and pick out something that strikes my fancy.
In case you couldn’t tell, my current obsession is sideways shawls.
Lucy seems more interested in circles.
