The kindness of friends

I finished the Kindness shawl for my BFF and she should have it in her possession by now.

Before blocking…

During blocking…

Only three yards of yarn left after an extra repeat of the Horseshoe lace…

Final views…

Details on my Ravelry page.

Nice pattern

Wrong yarn.

I love the leafy border on the Ka’ana shawl/wrap.  But the yarn is all wrong for this wrap.

The color is wrong…for me.  Not a fan of pastels.

The actual weight of the yarn is just too heavy.  It’s a dk weight but it’s cotton.  And cotton can be heavy.

I’ll let you know if I use it this summer on cool evenings.  If I don’t…

PS – I DID win at yarn chicken!!

I didn’t win at yarn chicken

I didn’t win but at least I figured it out before I got too far into the lace motif.  The Kindness shawl is off the needles and blocked.  I had 48 inches of yarn left after I did one row of the lace motif and an extra row of knitting.

I love it!

I love the colors.

I love the yarn.

It’s the perfect size to wrap around my neck instead of a bulky scarf.

And I only found one mistake.  But I don’t care.  At least it’s not a dropped stitch!

Which way now?

Mr. Aitch gifted me this beautiful yarn for Christmas.

The Which Way shawl pattern was written for this Wonderland Yarns Mad Hatter kit of five gradients plus one.  This is the Little Busy Bee and Lime to Turquoise kit.  I LOVE all the colors!

The shawl is finished.

I ran out of the main color and used the rest of the first color in the gradient to finish though I still ran out of yarn.  Others on Ravelry had the same issue with the quantity of yarn vs pattern.

Most of the ends are woven in but haven’t blocked the shawl.  I’m just not sure I like it.
