yarn along

I’m making headway on my cosmic remix shawl.  I can’t decide how I feel about this pairing of yarn + pattern.  I absolutely love the yarn but I do want to use every bit of these two skeins in a shawl and I want it to be warm and cozy.  This fabric is so light and airy and according to the patten I’m nearing the end of the garter triangle part of the shawl, and I’ve maybe used half of one skein, maybe!  It’s hard for me to check gauge on this fabric but I do believe I’ve gotten gauge, but to me the triangle looks smaller than I expected.  If I rip out and cast on again with a smaller needle size, the shawl will be a good bit smaller still.  I will carry on and see how it goes, but if I do have to rip it out in the end and find a different pattern for the yarn, that will be just fine. 🙂  I have no problems knitting with this yarn over and over again, it is just dreamy in a rustic-soft kind of way.  I haven’t knitted with silk mohair but this reminds me of it, with a silky sheen and a ton of halo.

I’m still reading The Fledgling (affiliate link), and nearing the end.  I like it so far.
