Since part two was published - what, 10 days ago? 11? I'm probably not ruining anything for anybody but just in case, la la la...
Okay, are you sitting down?
In my near-bulky handspun, this shawl is turning into a giant puff.
It isn't going to be a shawl so much as a hug, but at least I've able to get it to the same size as every part of my original shawl; I'll add extra repeats of something if it looks like I have any yarn left. Also, this is superwash fiber. Maybe it will stretch out bigger after blocking.
ahhhhh. I am so happy I spun these two ropes of fiber together.
On the other hand, I have been panicking a bit about my choice of contrast colour for the Vermont shawl.
Fortunately I got a good way into Part Three yesterday, complete with second stripe which seems to balance it better. Also, while I was at that cottage last week I looked up at the leaves filtering sun down to where I was and they were glowing in pretty much this shade of green. I'm going to take that as A Sign.
In my opinion it looks prettier, aka less rumpled, in the closeup.
It's getting so big, I don't know how I'm going to take the picture of Part Three! But I do know I will have pictures to post, because I got so very much done in the car yesterday. Go me.
