FO: Stitch Sampler Shawl

IMG_2944-01

Seriously, I’ve had this thing washed and blocked for ages, but I just haven’t had the time to take/post pictures of it yet! With the summer temperatures still stubbornly hanging in there, I didn’t dare wrap up in its squishy warmth. Instead, I draped it over some furniture, hoping to still catch the beautiful stitch variations.

I think this is probably one of my favorite projects to date. I enjoyed the heck out of this yarn, and the different stitches really kept it interesting. My finished piece measured a whopping 66″ x 16″. It was supposed to be close to 60″ x 13″, but I think the extra length and width just makes it that much more cozy.

Hopefully the weather will start to cool down soon. I just can’t wait to wrap up in this smooshy baby and read a book or drink some tea.

Heck, why not both?

    1. It just happened like that. πŸ™‚
      I thought hard about whether or not I should cut in between the different sections to match the colors, but I decided to go the wabi-sabi way and let the yarn do what it would, even if it didn’t end up perfect. The striping in the yarn was almost exactly right for this shawl though! There’s a little bit of color overlap at the end of a few rows, but otherwise, it matched up really well.
