There were parts of this that were like a dream, rows where I’d zoom along but it was a knitting black hole and I seemed to never make progress. Then there were times where I could see it growing before my eyes. The last night I worked on it, during our gaming session was almost like that. Complete a row, turn, bam, another row done, repeat.
I suspect I could have made it larger during blocking but I got it to grow quite a bit already and exceeded the original dimensions so was quite happy with it. I’m not sure the size of the final recipient but I bet it’s plenty large enough to wrap her in warmth and love.
I dearly love how the gradients flow. When I was knitting it I wasn’t sure as there were places where it seemed to jump. Now that it’s complete though it seems to blend perfectly. Lynn was asking which I thought was more impact-ful, this or the Chinook Shawl I’ve done several times. I think they both have their strengths but the amount of lace with the custom dye on this one is visually stunning.
