A long overdue post, but you know how it goes.
Pattern: Seraphim Shawl from Mimknits
Yarn: Socks that Rock Lightweight in Obsidian, 3 skeins
Needles: 3.75 mm Addi Lace (love ’em)
This was a great knit – fast, easy but not boring, and super useful. It looks a little crumpled in the photos because I’ve been wearing it before I had a chance to photograph it! I like wrapping my triangular shawls around my neck as a nice big scarf, and this one works really well for warmth because of the mostly stockinette section.
The pattern was well written and fun – it was easy to build up steam since the first many rows were just stockinette with yo’s at the edges and in the middle. There were a heck of a lot of stitches by the end, though, and those last couple rows took forever! It was well worth it – I finished the shawl in under three weeks, I think.
I think the yarn works really well with the pattern – it’s a semi solid, but there isn’t so much variation that it detracts from the simplicity of the shape and the look of the lace pattern.
All in all, a super successful knit!
