First up is the Confection Shawl in its ready to wear condition. I will enjoy wearing this in the booth this month I think. 😊
As I may have mentioned last time, I used a total of 913 yards of my Classic Merino Superwash Sock yarn for this. It’s a pretty generous sized crescent shaped shawl. If I wanted to used only two skeins in two colors I would use the Classic Merino Bamboo since those have 490yds./100g.
I believe this was probably the quickest shawl knitting I have ever done. I completed it in about two weeks, which is crazy for the size of it. Gotta love that!
Which brings me to my next project on the needles, my small Vintage Diamonds Cardigan. I started it on Sunday night in the Classic Merino Bamboo in Crimson. I think this will be a nice alternative yarn to the Superwash Sock I used on the original. It’s light fabric is even more flexible for warmer climates and layering.
This color is challenging to photograph because it tends to look less saturated and warmer than it is in person. I think it will pair well in the booth with the medium grey of the Graphite sample.
I hope to have the back and at least one sleeve done in a few days. I should be able to estimate the yardage for the whole sweater by that. Since Kristi is kindly test knitting the largest size, I may be able to publish the pattern soon. 😀
