I’m not sure why but I have a thing for shawls at the moment. One thing I’ve learned is never pass up motivation!
At first I decided this next project would be for ME. But as I started working on the shawl with yarn I bought by ME for ME I realized it’s not what I wanted. Ugh. I’m so complicated sometimes! I did realize that I love this pattern but the colors of the yarn weren’t doing anything for me. Don’t get me wrong I really like this microfiber yarn, it’s soft, shinny and worked up easily but, I think I want some minor changes for a self-kept project.
So, this shawl, when finished, will be put up for sale.
My shawl will eventually be the exact same pattern but in an ivory (or charcoal) 100% alpaca lace weight yarn instead. I’ve never attempted a lace project before. I’m hoping having muscle memory with the green shawl will help me tackling a lace weight project.
I found the shawl pattern on Ravelry and it is written very well. I had to read it line by line until I committed the pattern to memory and I’m thankful it was written correctly.
What are you up to this week?
