Last year, I started working my way through a short row book, and I have enjoyed every single pattern made out of it so far.
However, I am not sure how to feel about the results of this particular shawl because the yarn didn’t knit the way I expected. The shawl pattern was alot of fun, and as you can see, it drapes beautifully.
But as you can also see in the flat photos, the colors are not exciting. This yarn was given to me and has been in my stash for a long time. It is very vibrant in the ball, but knit up, is not that exciting. I think this is a classic case of the colors muddying up because of not having any one dominant shade.
I am thinking I will probably just treat this shawl as a gray shawl and wear it the way I would wear a gray accessory. I’d like to make it again in a different yarn because the pattern was so fun, and just being honest, I don’t feel like I did it justice.
But, I am curious to know what you all think – do you love it or hate it?
