There’s always something so satisfying to start something but right now I’m trying my best at being a quite monogamous knitter: I only allow myself to have one sock and one shawl on my needles. This one is not as new as it could seems. I’ve already (and secretly) worked a sample of this shawl in two colours. I couldn’t wait until the yarn reach me before starting! Now that the “official” yarn arrived in my mailbox, I’m happy to be able to unplug my brain for a bit and only knit it according to the pre-written / pre-checked instructions. That’s the best part, am I right?
The pattern is also almost ready, charts are done, I have a name, and the sneak-peek has started. It will be published in a couple of weeks, in the Summer Box from Le Chat qui Tricote which will make its débuts at the yarn fair Les Estivales de la Laine (where I’ll be a teacher!). It still needs to be polished here and there, but otherwise it’s pretty much done.
Now about that bazillion stitches: this shawl is worked bottom-up, which means you need to cast-on quite a few stitches. Does it worth it? I think so, otherwise the lace border would not have been as pretty!
Looking for this pattern?
