Hurrah! I’ve finally finished the shawlette for Laura. Admittedly, I had to pause for a bit in order to try and start and finish arm warmers for Rian, but it just wasn’t possible to do that. I did about 60% of the arm warmers before Rian arrived for her weekend visit. I’ll have to post them out to her, probably with her Christmas present now.
Anyway, the shawlette. I realised while I was making it that I hadn’t gone the whole way around the loom. I was pretty annoyed at myself, because that had been the plan, and when I realised my error, I was about 45% into it and didn’t want to frog it and start again. So considering that, in the end, the finished project looked heaps better than I dared to hope. Mum was my shoulder model again, and I have to say, the shawlette worked out really nicely.
I used a mohair yarn for this one, the Kuka Yarns Magic Mohair in red/brown/tan (Rav link: http://www.ravelry.com/yarns/library/kuka-yarns-magic-mohair) and the pattern I used was the awesome large shawl pattern for the knifty knitter by H. S. Schulte, here: http://kniftyknitterweekly.blogspot.com.au/2014/04/large-shawl.html
So now, the photos!
