Color Love – Knitting FO

I finished this knit back at the end of March and then it took me quite a while to get around to blocking it and taking photos. As most of you know, I have only been knitting shawls for the last ten years or so. The last garments I knit were The Lucy Hat in 2014 and Issara in 2011 so it's been a while since I've done anything other than shawls.

I think this will be my last giant shawl for the time being.

Though I love how this knit turned out, it's just too big to be practical. I really need to find smaller shawls to knit or just knit blankets (which is what I'm doing now).

This giant beast of a shawl took me a year to knit. I was cruising on it in the beginning, and then I stalled out through the middle of the shawl. Finally, I just wanted it done so I cruised through the end. Unfortunately, I ran out of yarn and had a very frustrating experience of ripping out and picking up almost 500 stitches! But I got it done, and that's what matters.

I'm knitting a cross-stripe blanket now and loving it! I'll probably knit several before I move on to something else.

All the details about yarn and needles and more images are all on Ravelry.
