Finished shawlette! The colors are very rich pinks and purples, which was hard to capture. The flash photos show off the stitches a bit better, but the darker shots are a more accurate reflection of color.

I bought the yarn on a whim because the colorway was called “Melisandre”, but I think this shawlette ended up being the perfect project for it.

Next post: showing off my shawlette in action.

Pattern: Ashton shawlette

Yarn: Toil and Trouble sock yarn in Melisandre

WIP Wednesday ThursdayLet’s pretend I didn’t have technology problems that prevented me from sharing this yesterday on Wednesday.Only 45 more inches to go on my Few of My Favorite Things Cowl(pattern/idea here)I’m enjoying this EXCEPT except except 72 stitches on a 16” circular are NOT ENOUGH. I keep having to violently push my stitches around. Part of the problem is that I’m a tight knitter and the black main yarn is a bit thinner than worsted. BUT STILL if I wanted to do this again, I’d cast on at least 96. This would be the perfect project to learn 2 handed fair isle knitting, instead of my beginner drop and pick up method, but not having enough stitches to flow properly makes it impossible for me to really get the rhythm because I have to drop both yarns and get my stitches around the needle.I am excited tho because I just started putting a tardis on it. And I’m going to do a weeping angel too because the weeping angel episodes are some of my favorites. I thought about putting my girls’ names on it, but decided I’d rather put some animals that represent them instead.
