I love this one. It is so huge and so squishy it is like a blanket wrapped around my neck. If you recall, this is the project made with yarn I dyed myself back in November. It was slow going for awhile – those rows, man, they just got so long. And then I ran out of yarn. Twice. So if you look at mine versus the one on the pattern, mine definitely does not look the same.
We were out the other morning, and I asked my Seester to snap a photo of me and Miles in front of the colorful mural. She noticed that I matched the colors.
I enjoyed knitting this one. The pattern – Drachenfels – was well written. The yarn -Blue Faced Leicester sport weight – is nice and soft and warm and was a dream to knit. A shawl done up in sport weight yarn comes together pretty quickly. Details are on my Ravelry project page.
…not like a shawl knitted in sock weight yarn. Which brings me to my Daybreak. I started this back in March 2015, worked on it for awhile and then stuffed it away in my craft closet when I got too bored. A Ravelry challenge motivated me to just finish it. Details are on my Ravelry project page.
