A few months ago I restarted the Rustic Shawl, using the yarns my Cousin Ruth sent me.
Here’s how the front started — I’m calling it the ‘front’ because the colors are brighter on this side.
And here’s the back side of it, with more of the beige undyed yarn showing.
And this is where it is now. It is too long to stretch out fully on the needle, but measuring centerpoint to tip is 26 inches, so I know the top is about 52 inches across the top.
It will block out into a fairly good triangle. I’ve just finished the second 3-stripe blue band, and need to do another of the light green and dark green. I think I’ve got enough of those colors to do it. Not sure I have enough of the undyed beige to carry on, but I will try. It is rather heavy to work on, and because it bunches on the needle now it really doesn’t flow easily and it hurts my hands to work too long on it. I’m not even sure anyone will want it when I’m done. It’s not fancy by any stretch of the imagination — deliberately constructed without fancy stitches, just knitting all the way. But, I will carry on, and we shall see. 🙂
