I'm using Sundara
Silky Merino Aran yarn and it's a very pretty color (Thank you Brooklyntweed
!). I do have a big problem with the consistency of the yarn though, it's flecked with white spots of fiber missing dye. I guess I can say it's on purpose. The yarn is so silky though, like buttah!
I did an extra repeat, nine in all, and I only have eight rows left to finish it and I RAN OUT OF YARN! Shoulda' known. Jeez. So I'm waiting for Sundara to dye me up another hank so I can finish it. It's torture, I LOVE LOVE LOVE this pattern and the yarn is perfect for it. It only took me five days to get so close to finishing it after figuring out the crochet cast-on and the over all structure of the shawl. I brought it to my wonderful LYS
to ask how I was progressing, and he said that I was doing so well and that I didn't need to ask him for help anymore if I was knitting this up (I had no idea).
I'm going to start up an other one, I have plans for two more. One in Rowan Felted Tweed
color #147, a really pretty green, I'm going to try a swatch of it, who knows, I may not like it. And then another one in the Silky Merino Aran, I may buy the yarn undyed this time and dye it myself.
So until the yarn gets here I'll jut enjoy the raspberry bumps of my unfinished Shetland Triangle. I hope you don't mind the long post, I'm just so excited about this scarf.
