Wingspan–Is It A Scarf Or Is It A Shawl?
I don’t really care which one it is. The thing I really love about it is that it is DONE!
The ends are woven in and all it needs now is blocking.
This was a project that took much longer than I expected.
WHY! Well I read the directions wrong. It started out: Sl1P, K2……..
I read it as K2 together and by the time I got to the 4th point I was running low on stitches…….
The only way to fix it was to rip out ALL I had done……and I had spent almost a full day knitting.
On about the 5th point I dropped 3 stitches and the only way I could resolve that was to rip back almost the entire point!
You may notice the colors don’t appear evenly. I started with a ball of variegated sock yarn in a color that talked to me. It had a long uneven repeat of each color.
I was quite sure it would not be enough for the entire project so I found a partial ball of the green yarn and used that for the first rows of each point,.
I used up every single yard of that variegated yarn and have just a few yards of the green left.
Since I love asymmetrical things the color arrangement works for me.
