I chose a shawl called Comfort Abides - a diamond pattern, knitted in variegated wool in the pattern - so easy to imagine it in the variegated silk yarn I had.
It has taken me a couple of weeks to complete. Although it isn't complex, it requires concentration.
Once again, the finished product when still on the needles, looks like a rag.
I am a loose knitter and cast off loosely, as the pattern indicated, only to discover the result was far too tight, so I undid the cast-off row and swapped to a 10mm needle (I used 5mm for the shawl), cast off using that and the result was about right.
I then blocked it on my study carpet, hoping for the gossamer miracle.
And yes, it was granted! Mind you, there is a patch where I lost my way a bit with the pattern when I had to retrieve dropped stitches.
The Ann Collins yarn seems to go on forever. I still have enough for at least another scarf, if not a shawl.
