The Estonian Garden wrap has been blocked. The ends have been woven in. I'm in love!
The final details:
- Yarn: Knit Picks Gloss, celery, 2 skeins (440 yds per skein)
- Needles: 4.0 mm
- Started in May 09, finished July 09
This is where your opinion comes in. Because the Estonian Garden wrap is finished, I'm looking for another "something" to start (can't have empty needles, can I?). I've started this scarf/wrap, from "Victorian Lace Today" by Jane Sowerby.
Below is my swatch. The yarn is Handmaiden Yarns Angel Hair and is a mohair/nylon blend. I bought it a number of years ago and I just haven't found the perfect pattern for this yarn (I bought two skeins of it and each skein is 100 grams, 800 metres). I love the individual colours in the yarn, but I'm not sure I like it knit up.
What do YOU think? Should I just keep going and hope it grows on me? Or is it just too stripey for this scarf?
I think I'll keep going for the moment, perhaps do another couple of repeats, and see how it looks then. I'd love to know what you think, though, and please, don't just say what you might think I want to hear. I really want your honest opinion. If you think it looks like something the cat barfed up, tell me! :)
Edited to add: Susan, I have 2 grams of yarn remaining, and if I've calculated correctly, that's about 17.6 yards.
