Version 1 of my shawl design is done.
Whew! It’s not DONE done, but close. I have been working on this design for a while, picking out stitch patterns for the different bands I had in mind, but hadn’t put them together. Before I tried this with good yarn, I wanted to do one quick version to test whether or not the stitch patterns worked together, if the transition from one yarn to another worked, and so on.
So I grabbed four skeins of KnitPicks Palette yarn I had around in “close enough” colors and gave it a go. It worked! All this by way of saying – I know some of these colors are not great. This isn’t the final version. But here is a cross section anyway!
It is going to get some pretty aggressive blocking tomorrow, which I think will make the patterns a bit clearer and less bunchy.
Next up I’m taking a short break to work on Forest Weave for a bit. After that, back at it. I have two different versions planned – four color and five color, to accommodate different sizes of mini-skeins. (This version is the four color.) And directions to adapt it for more or less yarn. Also my Mom wants a beaded one. And then it gets charted up!
What are you working on right now? Details please!
