Oh my goodness.
This shawl is giving me fits.
I was so enthusiastic to begin Sarah's (Crafts from the Cwtch) summer shawl KAl. I mean it isn't like I have never knitted lace before--but for some reason I am struggling with this very well written pattern, Ictis by Boo Knits.
I started out with lace weight yarn--a very pretty Malabrigio Silkpaca--
which I came to loathe after just a few days, but after starting the thing over and over, I decided a new yarn was called for.
I just happened to have this lovely green hand-dyed 3 ply fingering just laying around waiting to be chosen for a project.
And now I have this!
There was also a little drama regarding needles too. I was thinking I might need to go up a needle size--to a size 8.
Could I find my Addi Click size 8's??? Of course not.
After turning my house upside down , to no avail, and subjecting my teen boys to a mommy temper tantrum,
I gave up and decided to purchase a new pair the next day.
Which I did, on Sunday.
Which is why, of course I found my missing needles on Monday!
People already have finished shawls up on Ravlery?
I will probably need the entire time allowed, and even then I might be pushing it!
