I have finished knitting my Taiyo Shawl, and now it’s blocking time! Time to get out the mats, pins, and wool wash. I’m anxious to see how this piece’s lace section open up.
Unfortunately, I ran out of the Taiyo yarn about 2/3 of the way through. I should know better by now, but the Frog Tree Brushed Suri yarn I bought along with it is the same weight, and worked well in completing the project. It should feel nice and soft against my shoulders when I wear it.
Strangely, knitting this shawl has inspired me to pick up another shawl that I had been working on, my Faroese Elpsa Katrina shawl. I knit one skein’s worth of the project, and sort of put it down. Other things and projects came up, I guess.
Still, that other skein of Einband that I had bought for the project was staring me in the face for almost a year now, until I picked up the shawl back up, started knitting, and ordered more of the yarn I needed. I can keep working on this.
Has another project inspired you to work on another different one?
