Almost, Almost Done

At six and one-half skeins in, I’m ready to start the final garter border and finish this shawl. I’ll be playing yarn chicken and have my swatch, which I’ve already unraveled, washed, and reskeined, handy. 

I love the pattern, based of feather and fan lace. It has a simple rectangular shape and very clean edges, produced by slipping the last stitch of every row and knitting the first stitch of each row through the back loop. 

It has taken me quite awhile to knit this and I’ll be finishing up just in time to wrap myself up and ward off chilly fall weather. 

One thought on “Almost, Almost Done

  1. Hi,
    I love your blog! I used to get angora yarn from a western Oregon farm and dye it up. Natural fibers take dyes in such a unique hue. I love vegetable dyes for natural fibers as well. In a previous life I used to design the sweaters for Ellen Tracy in NYC. I so understand the calmness that knitting and dyeing brings to ones soul.
