Weigh it shawl!

I CO for a Weigh It Shawl last weekend.  Well, really the weekend before.  I started on US#6 (because I knew better than the pattern) and then CO again with US#9 a week later (because it turns out the pattern was right).  I’m getting a much better drape on the 9s.

Isn’t it pretty?  I love love love the colors!

It’s Miss Babs Yowza Whatta Skein in the Perfectly Wreckless colorway. I’ve checked out a bunch of WIPs with this colorway and they vary greatly – from lotsa pink, to lotsa white, to more black/purple (like mine). I didn’t realize they varied so much when I bought it at Rhinebeck but I’m glad I got the shading that my skein has.

I’ll catch you on the purl side…

    • Miss Babs is the bomb! i really wish she was going to Vogue Knitting Live in NYC this weekend. (or maybe i should be glad she isn’t…)

  1. I finished my Brickless last night and wore it to work today (it dried quickly while blocking). Lots of compliments on the color. Should we be colorway twins on Saturday at VKL?

    • omg that’s awesome! yes colorway twins! the fact that we both bought this independently at rhinebeck is a sign we need to coordinate :)

  2. So funny… I do the ‘I know better than the pattern’ all the time, only to realize that I really don’t :) This is looking fabulous!
