I have wanted to knit the Shetland Triangle by Evelyn Clark for ages, it seems. I think Cheryl’s was the first one I saw and hers is gorgeous. So light, so delicate and in her own handspun, too. Kim has knit it and so has Susanhttp://knittingasfastasican.com/2007/to-the-moon-baay-bee/ with Margene’s handspun, no less. Their shawls are also light and delicate.
Inspired by my friends and also Spun Stitches, I decided to knit this shawl with my handspun. I’ve got 9 repeats done and here it is so far:
Light and delicate? Not so much. The yarn is heavier than I’d like it to be and I probably should be using bigger needles. The variegated green/yellow is sort of hiding the lace and I’m not thinking this is a great yarn/pattern match. However, I’m too stubborn to rip it out and start over with different yarn so I will persevere. And I will finish.
But given what came in the mail on Monday, well, it’s not going to be easy.
