I finished up my Shetland Triangle. I knitted it with a the KAL "Girls in Sheep Clothing.... and a few guys too." This is such a simple pattern with great results. The same patterns repeat over and over so it is very easy to keep the pattern in your head. Also you get a row of purling on the wrong side. You have to love to have a break from knitting lace on the wrong side!
The colors of the shawl in the pictures of me wearing it are truer. You can make this shawl as large as you want. The pattern is flexible and lets you knit as many repeats as you want. I made 17 repeats of the chart so my shawl would be able to wrap around me and by extra comfy.
I am really happy with the Cascade Heritage yarn I used for this shawl. It knitted up very nice and was so soft.
I am also still working on my Plliver top. This top pattern is much more intense from the Shetland Triangle. It is a beaded lace stitch and is a lot of knitting and doesn't look like much progress.
I am just starting to notice funky colors happening in the front of it. They aren't shown here. I knitted more after I took these pictures and there are chunks of color. Ugg. I should have be alternating my yarn, but I'm going to stick with it and maybe it will have a zebra effect in the end. We'll see.
Either way I am going to keep chugging away at it. I ended up knitting a small hat yesterday because I needed an instant gratification knit. I think I need to add a few more small projects to my plate.
