I love the Shetland Triangle!




I finished the Shetland Triangle a couple of weeks ago. I'm not a shawl girl, but I really loved knitting it up, in fact I've already started another. The yarn is Sundara's Silky Merino Aran (I don't know what it is about this yarn that I can't get a good picture of it, it must be the silk in it), I like the yarn a lot, except for the fact that I have yet to wear the shawl and it is already getting fuzzy. I did one extra repeat and had to order one more skein after I ran out, which makes the shawl a two and a quarter skein project. I only had about seven rows left to knit up when I ran out. Bummer.

At the moment I'm knitting the second Shetland Triangle in Rowan Felted Tweed, it's looking like a great yarn, I'm really happy with how tweedy it is. My only concern is that there may be a lack of stitch definition, I'll knit a few repeats and check it out.

Thanks so much to everyone who helped me start off the shawl when I had questions!

    Interesting to see that you did this using a heavier yarn than called for--I guess it doesn't really matter for a shawl. I have some variegated, 6sts/inch weight yarn that I've been thinking of using for this. I don't know if variegated makes sense, though--it might be too much with the intricate pattern. What do you think?

    That's BEAUTFIFUL! I love the color! Makes me want to knit with red! I just might do that for the next thing I knit.

    When you first loaded these pictures I couldn't get them up on my screen. Well now I can and I must say the combination of the yarn, the colour and the pattern are just stunning.

    What a wonderful pattern and how well executed! I love shawls and am experimenting with a bit of lace knitting at the moment. I love it!
