I began a cozy corner shawl at the beginning of March, and it’s really been my only lives at home knitting project for the entire 3 months that it took to knit it. It is done!
This is all handspun yarn, the gray that I used as the main color was spun from a fleece I processed myself. I can say, one thing about fleece processing is that it always gave me loads and loads of yarn even though it took ages to create! It’s tempting to do another fleece some time in the future. It has been MANY Years!
The colors are from yarn Miss Marja spun and gave to me. I ended up using two of her projects in this piece. And I didn’t even finish the pattern, I ended up finishing early because I didn’t have any more appropriate handspun colored pieces to use. The shawl is immense anyhow!
This was a pleasant, easy, fun knit. I did enjoy it quite a lot! I just kind of threw in colors as I saw fit with very little rhyme or reason. If I had to do it all over again, I might just do a solid colored icord edge instead of striping the icord bind off. I would knit it again though, simply because it was fairly simple and comfortable to create.
It is consistently amazing even after all these years just how much garter stitch grows when soaked and blocked. This shawl ended up being so large once complete!
In the end, a large project knit over the span of 3 months now complete. And the hard part becomes what to knit next!
