As many of you know, I knit shawls. For the most part I've been making simple triangle shawls using the yarn over technique to increase.
I bought some new yarn at the brand spankin new Michael's store we got in my town!!! It was ghastly expensive but I wanted to try it out.
I started out using my usual pattern but quickly realized that it was too tight of a pattern for the new yarn. I looked up a new one in my Prayer Shawl companion book that I have. It's for a lacy triangle shawl. It worked much better.
Obviously it's on larger needles and instead of using the yarn over stitch, I did an increase stitch.
I liked it. It made for a larger, looser shawl and was perfect for this yarn.
Here are a couple of pictures.
It's a very funky yarn made up of many different textures.
I think it's kind of cool!
