Pattern: Oaklet Shawl by Megan Goodacre, it's a free download
Started: March 6, 2016
Finished: June 19, 2016
Yarn: The Cyborg's Craftroom Assparkilate in Luck of the Irish
I ran out of this yarn. The pattern called for 380-400 yards. I knit loose, so I went down a needle size to a US4 and still ran out of yarn (I do have a small bit left, it was enough for one more row). So I searched for a border yarn.
Border Yarn: Fiber Stash Dyeworks Twinkle Toes Sock Yarn in (the label says Smaller on the Outside) not sure that is right..looking at her website, it could be Vitamin C.
The pattern was simple to follow. I didn't make any mods. This is one of my first times doing a "lace" border. It's not too big (about 68"x30"). I have found that I don't wear my larger shawls as much. I like just wrapping them around my neck. But it is bigger than my Boneyard or Age of Brass and Steam.
I'm loving the bright green color!
So how about you? Any finishes this week? As always, please link back...thanks!
