TFA Colour KAL – the Neapolitan Ice Cream Shawl
My TFA Colour KAL project is finally finished, off the needles and I love it. I love it so much I’ve already cast on another one. The Pink Grapefruit turned out to be just the thing. Ravelry project page here:
This is the Colour Affection shawl all done! Thank you to the lovely Jeanette for modelling it for me.
I love the way these three colours come together. The only change I’m making on the next one is following the Yarn Harlot’s suggestion of adding a yarn over after the first stitch on every row and dropping it on the way back to give the edge some ease. Despite my best efforts, this one is a little tight.
I hate it when I finally cast off a new shawl and it turns out to be way too small to actually wear as a shawl. It becomes a cute little neck warmer that leaves me feeling just a wee bit disappointed. Well, this shawl delivered and then some. It’s super snuggly and easy to wear at a whopping 8 feet by 16 inches after blocking.
The garter stitch does feel endless at the end but it’s …. garter stitch. It’s mindless and fast and I even managed to whip off a few rows in a movie theatre. Honestly, 2 weeks start to finish and I’m not a fast knitter. I’ve already got another one in the works – this time combining 3 skeins (all of which had other plans initially but Oh Well) of precious Viola yarn:
Selfish knitting on both fronts. Oh yes, I cannot bear to part with these babies. Not much can make me wish for winter weather in May… but this comes close!
