This is definitely one of my favorite FO’s. Completely unexpected because in true Iz fashion, I hated it at the beginning. The main color was working up so much darker than the cone! Betrayal!
I had such a “meh” feeling as I cast off. I even said out loud, “now what?” as I pulled the yarn through the last stitch.
It wasn’t until I draped it over my shoulders that my heart exploded. I love it, I love it, I love it.
I swore I wasn’t a shawl person. The word alone made me cringe. But hot damn I’ll wear the crap out of this.
The only thing I would change if I were to do it again (and I probably will) is work one more row of garter before the border. I favor the side where the knits are my contrast colors and would have rather the MC purl bumps show on the opposite side.
So so pleased. Happy Monday everyone!
