This shawl almost didn't make it to the finish line. But I'm glad it did.
My favorite part of Poly was the beginning triangle: it's construction is very clever and I like the stitch pattern too.
I hated the lace part of it, simply because I screwed up so much. YO's are my enemies! Either I have too many, or not enough. Many a ripping involved here. Purely my fault, the pattern is wonderful!
The reason why I almost didn't finish it was the ruffles at the edge. I really liked them in the original, but did not want to knit them myself. So I was all set to bury the shawl in a bag, and hide it, when I thought I could just do a garter ridge edge instead.
I'm very happy with the end result.
pattern: Polyhymnia's Triangle by Romi Hill
yarn: Wandering Cat Yarns Twinkle Cat (Marcasite), and WCY Twinkle Cat Gold (honey color-Rumpelstilzchen)
size after lightly blocking: 24" x 90"
mods: I omitted the ruffles at the edge, and knit garter ridges instead
I also wanted to show you what I'm spinning right now. I love the colors so much.
It's for my third (and last) Old Forge blanket.
