I promptly cast on for another project right after I put together last week’s post on Color Affection inspiration. But it sat with me all week and by the end of the week I couldn’t wait to work on it again.
I pulled it out yesterday and finished all of section 2 and even got to section 3. It’s great to work with the green-blue Kelp as well. I’m understanding why this shawl has almost 10,000 projects on Rav – the colors taunt you to knit more.
There are two less-than-awesome things that happened when I added the third color:
- The yarns were getting tangled on each other – as in I had to detangle them every two rows. That wasn’t sustainable so I deliberately thought about how I was rotating my work each row and I think I may have figured this out. I need to knit more before I know for sure.
- I’m not totally in love with the third color yet. I did love – really love – the 3 colors together in the hanks though, so I’m forging ahead with the hope that I just need to work more Kelp in the shawl to pull it together. Sometimes you just have to do that with knitting, you know?
I’ll be knitting away on Color Affection today, hoping my affection for the colors magically evolves.
I’ll catch you on the purl side.
