|Even my cat has given up... He is rolling over...|
This last blue one sure took me some time to finish. It was at the bottom of my unfinished projects as I discovered it a while ago. Just lying there in all its blue glory.
I decided to finish it. I am in this "finish your current projects before starting new ones" thinking. I hope it will last some time.
I should really finish some of them. After new year, I think. That is a great time finishing them. And then again, it is also a very good time starting new ones....
Anyway, this shawl is knitted in Mitu and Schulana Kid-Seta. Mitu is a mix of half wool and half alpaca. You may remember my post about me never using alpaca again.
Well, this yarn holds up. It is soft and wears nicely. The Mitu and the mohair is a match made in a yarn store.
I use interchangeable needles with two different sizes of needles. One is 4mm and one is 10mm. This is really a rib knit with one purl, and one knit stitch knitted from the back loop. As the needles have different sizes the stitch pattern looks very different from a normal rib knit.
I really love the color in this one. A bit dark, but then again bright. I wear these both inside and outside. I have modified the pattern some and you can read about that in my Ravelry project.
So, this may be the last one from this german pattern. Or...
I never say never, because I don´t want to be one of those guys
