FO – Afterglow shawl

posted in: Finished Objects, knit | 4

kräuterzwergOn Ravelry I could buy this yarn from a member. The yarn is 100% merino wool from Zauberwiese. The color is very interesting. The wool is too good for socks, so it should be a shawl.

According to notes from other projects I’ve cast on more stitches than suggested in the pattern. Nevertheless, it has become a small shawl: 130cm x 46cm. If I were to knit this scarf again, I would take also larger needles for a better drape of the shawl.

The pattern brings the delicate colors very good effect. I like it. My boyfriend said, however: these colors are not you! He meant that I’m not the delicate but rather the bright colors type :-) Maybe it will be a gift for the 7-year-old niece of my boyfriend …

    I love the colours in this one compared to the newer one, maybe it’s the goth in me coming out! They’re both awesome, anyway.

    Now cast on your turquoise tank top, I already started mine! ;)

      It’s not gothic like something in rainbow colors. I know :-) I haven’t yet cast on for my tank top so far. I’m too busy with holidays and another project…
