Here's the Shetland Triangle, yanked into shape after a soak in the sink.
I'm pleased. I think it's an intriguing pattern, and it was fun and easy to knit. I'm a little disappointed that it isn't bigger; I followed the directions exactly, and I wish I'd added at least one or two extra pattern repeats. It is a skimpy scarf more than a shawl, and one I'll use mostly when the weather is mellow. I'm planning to wear it to a wedding at the end of the month. The wedding's in LA, so I'm thinking it won't be snowing. Now I need a dress...
The completion of this shawl, the completion of the last pair of socks I was making for a Christmas gift, plus last week's rip fest, all combined to create an alarming situation: No simple knitting projects currently on the needles. I have a Cat Bordhi pair of socks currently going, but they're sort of languishing because it's not an automatic pilot project. I need those.
So I dug into the sock yarn stash, and started winding this:
That's a skein of Shaefer Anne, in an unknown colorway. A pair of socks made with Anne is a bit of a commitment for me, because it's skinny yarn, and I have big feet, and I knit socks on little needles. Anne knits up just right for me on 0s, with 80 stitches around. These should take a while. I may even be knitting them on our way to that wedding in LA.
