I have been knitting like crazy on my Color Affection shawl. Since I didn’t get it done in time to give it to its intended recipient for Christmas, I’m trying to get it done for her birthday instead, which is, Crikey! In only about 6 weeks. My daughter helped me spread it out so you all could see where I am at this moment:
In case you’re wondering, I’m in the middle of the 6th repeat of the short row section.
I’m still worried a bit about the overall depth of the shawl. It seems a bit skinny, like the lace weight version, but this is fingering weight yarn. I am thinking of adding an extra repeat on the short rows, fudging the bottom border to make it a little deeper, and blocking the hell out of it to recover as much depth as I can. I’m probably going to need a blocking helper when the time comes, because the thing is so big that I’m pretty sure I won’t be able to stretch it out by myself.
Oh yeah, and like it or not, my friend’s going to find that her gift comes with free cat hair included:
That’s all for now! I’ve got knitting to do.
