Since my last post, I have finished Exploration Station! Â It is now washed and blocked (stretched) so that all the details and lace features show up better. Â I am very happy I finished this project. Â It’s really interesting because I picked this project and these colours for me. Â This was not going to be a shawl that I gave away or sold. Â This one was for me. Â Turns out it wasn’t. Â While I love the first few sections of the shawl, I’m not a huge fan of the last half. Â It really is a shame. Â The pattern itself is beautiful. Â I personally just don’t like how the colours came together in the end. Â While my whole knitting group doesn’t agree with me, what can you do? Â In the end it all comes down to personal preference! Â Alas!
Here is the finished Exploration Station:
And here is a closer picture of the details:
Since then I’ve decided to work on another shawl that has a touch of spring in it. Â The colours – pink, peach and yellow – are just so happy for this time of year. Â The pattern is called Cornwall Coast. Â So far, I’m loving it!
Stay tuned to see what this one turns into!!
