Turns out 4 balls of Lion Brand Landscapes (colorway Desert Spring) was not enough to finish the shawl. Thank goodness Wal-Mart had 2 more!
I had a few ounces leftover from making sure the colors blended seamlessly between balls (although it wasn’t really necessary, it would have looked fine with abrupt color changes), but I pretty much used all 6 balls.
You might think that, as a simple granny triangle, this wouldn’t require a written pattern. However, there are a surprising amount of ways to make this shape, with different numbers of chains, treble stitches on the end of rows, & different row transitions altogether. I might write this up and post it if you’re interested.
These photos are unblocked though, without the ends weaved in, so I’ll have to wait to take the final photos for the pattern until I can get to that. In the meantime I’m just admiring the colors…
Never thought these colors would go so well together. Who woulda thunk? Well, Lion Brand did. Thanks Lion Brand!
Even though this is acrylic I can tell already it’s going to be toasty — I can’t wait to wear it if it will ever get cold enough for my heavier weight items! Today the high reached 70 degrees Fahrenheit (21 degrees Celsius), so I didn’t even need close toed shoes or long sleeves for most of the day. It’s December. Go home weather, you’re drunk.
The knitted cowl is coming along, I’ll have more to share on that soon hopefully but I do have to make 3 more Christmas gifts! Better get busy.
That’s all for now then, thanks for stopping by!
