Knitting in progress

Posted on

This is just one of my current WIPs; have had no time to take photographs of the others. I am rather proud of this accomplishment, even though the shawl is not finished yet.

1. It’s laceweight yarn, albeit a heavier laceweight than most.
2. It’s a circular Pi shawl, which means the number of stitches double every few rows.
3. It’s a Knit Along project with the Wollmeiseholic Group on Ravelry, my first ever. But I’m not daunted because fellow Amira, Lisa is doing this too. See third photo of her project and mine.

The skein of yarn weighed 329 grams and had over 1770 yards. It was fun winding it because it was huge! I had to hand wind the last hundred yards or so because it won’t fit anymore.

It’s a fun pattern, so easy to follow the charted instruction. There are 4 charts which you only knit through once. It’s very simple lace, just increases paired with decreases and each lace row is followed by a plain knit row. The shawl is supposed to grow up to 160cm across when blocked.

Lisa chose a really gorgeous shade of red to knit her shawl. This is when we had a volcano meeting earlier in January :). This reminds me that I have not worked on my shawl for a while now, deadline is still two months away but I know I will be challenged with blocking so I want to get this finished. Just as soon as I finish a laceweight shawl test knit.
