Thank you for the opinions on my shawl. I am just going to keep going for it! At the end of it, if it is too crazy, I will think about overdyeing it or just give it away to someone who likes it. But onward!
I did finish a quick project. This was a test knit of a cowl off of the Free Pattern Testers group on Ravelry.
My Rav page here.
Pattern: Cerato Cowl by Nadja of Schneckenstrick. The pattern will be released on May 1st I think.
Yarn: Knit Picks Chroma Worsted in Sunrise, 1 skein.
Needles: US 5 and US9
Start Date: April 16, 2013
Finish Date: April 19, 2013
Notes: I knit the pattern as written, except I ran out of yarn. My row gauge must be different from the designer’s because my cowl was as tall as it was supposed to be, but I had to stop 7 rounds early. This didn’t affect the patterning much. I only have a couple feet of yarn left after that.
Nadja’s cowl was knit in Malabrigo Rios and looks super classy. Mine is… less so. I still like it, but it definitely feels like little girl colors. Though, twice while working on it, on two separate days, people noticed that it matched what I was wearing. I took a number of me-in-the-bathroom-mirror pictures. I’ll edit this post in a bit and add one of those photos. I will try to get some real pics soon though.
Also, the quilt is DONE. Even the binding and an embroidered label. I can not wait to get some good pictures of it to show you!!
