It’s that time of year – time for Ambah O’Brien’s Halloween KAL! This year I am doing one of her new designs, the Ghost Knitter’s Shawl. It’s one of her spooky designs, having similar skull lace as last year’s Betwixt shawl. Here is the Etsy link for the pattern, and the Ravelry link.
The yarn I’m using is all from stash.
The cream with orange speckles is MadelineTosh Red Fox, the orange tweed is Witch’s Teeth Tweed from Gnarledpaw Yarns, and the minis are scrounged out of a couple mini sets from Northern Bee (formerly A Tree Hugger’s Wife Yarn).
Here’s my start:
I’m going to use the Red Fox and the minis to knit the solid triangle part of the shawl, then the orange to do the skull lace. At least that’s the plan right now. I’m a little iffy about the orange tweed. And now that I’m a little way into it, I’m also questioning the miniskeins. So who knows what will wind up happening. However, I’m on the way!
What do you tend to do when you are questioning yarn choices or other things about a project? Keep going and hope it works out OK, or rip it back and figure out something else?
