One hundred and nineteen days or 17 weeks. This is how long Mel’s 40th birthday shawl was on the needles.
You were teased last week with its Eucalan soak. Wait no more as I present to you, pictures by Jellybean, *drum roll*
( ╹◡╹)っー’･*:.｡. .｡.:*･゜ﾟ･*Venetian Brass & Steam!
The wingspan is 45.5″ wide.
From the middle down to its triangle tip, it measures 17.75″ long.
The traditional way.
The hipster way.
The color is more saturated in person. I’ve always had a hard time capturing this Venetian colorway. It’s a discontinued color.
Pattern Used: The Age of Brass and Steam Kerchief by Orange Flower Yarn
Yarn: Madelinetosh Pashmina
Modifications: The yarn is one weight down from the recommended one. I used a smaller needle. Four panels of stockinette were knitted instead of three.
Would I knit this pattern again? It’s a simple one for everyone. If I were to make one again, I would use heavier yarn. I honestly got impatient trying to finish this gift in this weight and with size 3 (3.25 mm) needles.
I plan to create a card and wrap it all up in a bubble mailer this weekend before sending it off by Wednesday.
Thank you for dropping by today. I love your visits and have had fun reading your reactions the past, few posts. Off to update my Ravelry project page. Toot-a-loo!
