Triangle of yarn that is.
My copy of Simply Knitting Issue 89 is being good to me.
Yesterday it gave me Mug Hugs and yesterday evening it proferred this Triangular Shawl as a Quick and Easy Knit
Quick and Easy is not how I would have described getting started on this shawl.
A fair few months ago I tried my hand at making this shawl with absolutely no success.
I simply couldn’t get past row 9.
It was infuriating.
So I left it.
Last night I persevered and before I went to bed I had gotten as far as row 8 (for the umpteenth time!) and decided to leave it until this morning to tackle row 9.
It took a few tries but I finally made it past row 9 and am making good progress.
Apart from the little snag of having missed a row or repeated a row at some point.
The shawl is now looking just a tad mixed up as a result.
After just unravelling the ball of blue yarn I can now reveal that it’s Classic Collection Reflection Angora Gold Batik DK – 10% Mohair 10% Wool 80% Acrylic from Creative Yarns. A 100 grams of the lovely stuff.
Shade 105 Dye Lot 39666
Yes, I unravelled it.
I also added the info to my Ravelry profile.
It’s a geeky day.
