Ikke SÅ slemt / Not THAT bad
The little shawl that I really didn't like, got to have the ends sewn in, get a wash and a block. Now it's a square of 16 x 57 inches and actually not that horrible.
I like the wave-pattern in the in the different shades and types of yarn, even though I would have liked it a bit broader than the 16 inches..... The color is not right on this photo, by the way.
It feels a bit lighter and you almost see through it after the blocking, but it is still wool and I bet you it's nice and warm for the winter!
Måske ender historien om det lille, ulykkelige sjal, som ikke var elsket, så alligevel godt?
Lidt fakta: Garnet har jeg købt på Fanø. Det er ret sjovt med det store bundt af forskellige kvaliteter. Jeg har brugt så meget jeg kunne, men ialt vejer det 190 gram. Mønsteret er ganske almindeligt feather/fan. Meget nemt men effektfuldt!
It can just cover the shoulders, but doesn't go down that far. So what do you think? Do I need to make another one? Maybe I can add a shawl-pin or such (idea by my oldest niece). Wouldn't it be okay?
Maybe the tale of the little, unhappy shawl that no-one loved, will end happily after all?
Some fact: I bought the yarn on Fanø. It was fun with the big skein of different qualities. I used as much as I could, but in total it weighs 190 grams. The pattern is very straight-forward feather/fan. Simple, yet effect-full!
