Knitting

Lace Shawl — Completed!

So happy with the results! It seems like it took forever, but I guess that wasn’t really the case. Knitting shawls has one drawback: since you’re increasing the whole way, the piece is getting bigger, and it takes longer and longer to complete a row or section. But in this case, it was worth it.

The finished product is smaller than the pattern dimensions because I used a lighter gauge yarn. However, it’s the perfect size for me. It’s about 52″ across the top.

I used Bamboo Pop yarn (50% cotton, 50% bamboo) and knitting with it was a pleasure. The gauge for the pattern was 24 stitches to 4″. I ended up using just over 2 1/2 skeins.

      1. I just got one skein of Spud and Chloe wool/cotton to try. I know nothing about this yarn and was wondering if wool/cotton would make a nice sweater maybe not as warm as pure wool.

        1. I didn’t know Spud & Chloe made a wool/cotton yarn! I’ve found that blend to be a real good weight for a sweater — sometimes pure wool is too warm. You may find it to be “just right” for transitional weather. It fools you a little — it’s warmer than it might look at first!
