In case you havn’t noticed, I’m into a “knitting shawl” phase.
It will probably end really soon, but not yet and here’ another piece of knitting:
I immediatly loved the Black Death shawl pattern because it is classy, yet simple and elegant
It was also a good way for me to knit some of the yarn from my store.
I had a hard time to pick up which skein and which color I’ll use, but I finally decided to knit “Violettes”, 100% merino, with needles 7
I’ll use 2 skeins for this “Black death” shawl
Some stitch markers, a bit of patience, and the work grows pretty fast
and it was quite a good pick to use this yarn : I can now admire the variation of the colors while knitting
(and I love it)
although it requires a little bit of focus, if you want it to look regular and not mess up with the pattern, really, there is nothing to be scared of.
Ending it with, as usual, endless rows (more than 200 stitches on my needles), that’s why I now can say that I’ll be soon done with my shawl phase : I’m loosing all my patience while knitting the last row of each shawl I’ve made.
But it remains easy though and also, this Black death shawl is quite impressive once opened : it is huge (I look like a purple eagle with it !)
It was freezing cold outside, and starting to rain, so I didn’t take photos of me wearing it, that tree in the park was my modele 🙂
When choosing the yarn, I hesitated between the purple skeins or the green ones.
I may try to knit these green ones now
