Stripe Study Shawl KAL Update #1
It's Tuesday, which means it is the first update in the Stripe Study Shawl Knitalong that Sarah and I are doing *grins*
I took my grey skein of yarn with my to my mum's over Easter and she kindly helped to wind it (saving poor boyfriend the arm ache of a second skein of Wollmeise!). When I got back, I saw that Sarah had tweeted that she already had stripes! So I cast on immediately *laughs*
And now I have stripes too...
5 of them. I'm completely in love with this shawl already. I love the simplicity of it, the Wollmeise feels gorgeous once knit (I find it somewhat nondescript in the skein - pretty but not amazing to touch) and the colours are so vibrant.
This picture should show the colours a bit better:
I don't usually complain about the sun, but the way it was streaming through my window this morning made it very difficult to get a good picture of the wonderful bright green!
Don't forget to go and check out Sarah's lovely blog, Crafts from the Cwtch, to see her progress today. And if you're still wavering about joining us, here is an excellent Q&A post she cunningly put together to entice you. We've only just started, and the first bit is so quick, so you can definitely catch up!
And if you are participating, let me know so I can link to your blog too *smiles*
