And here is a video of it, which I insert largely on account of the loud shout I give mid-way through. You soon observe why. :D
The colours are too well-bred, I have decided. In fact, I decided that some years back (What ? – I haven’t been knitting this for years ? Well, I’ll be blowed !) by which time it was Too Late. Alas.
I’m not going to be able to enter it into the Geelong craft comp next year: it’s not nearly good enough. The last bit of brioche was marked, for me, by the virtual impossibility of getting that every-second-row decrease tight enough; and nearly every one is far too loose. Lesson for me: never make patterns that have a regular decrease at the end of rows.
As well, I don’t do Nan Bray’s White Gum Wool any favours by all the frogging and re-knitting: no fine 100% wool likes that, and WGW certainly doesn’t. It’s meant to be worked in pristine condition !
So several errors in this project, and all to be learned from.
Only thing is, I have NO IDEA what to do with it. Sighh … Anyone want a well-bred, mistake-free but not absolutely top-class in terms of even stitches light shawl ?
