Another Shawl? Really?

Okay, yes, so I haven’t gone back to the Emily Dickinson shawl yet, but I’ve started another one. And hopefully this one will go much faster.

I’ve already had my signature gauge snafoo and had to unravel a full sixteen repeats of the lace edging so I could start over. I was very careful to start over right after unraveling — sort of a “get back on the horse after you fall off” idea.

I’m knitting the shawl pattern called The Crow Waltz Shawl (the triangular version) and using a variety of yarns from my stash. The idea is to actually use some of those one-skein yarns I’ve been hoarding for over a year.

The yarn combination is rather amusing. Of the eight colors, two are completely store bought. One is commercial, but hand dyed. Four are hand spun and hand dyed. And the last one is someone else’s dye work, but I spun it. They also range in weight from fingering to heavy worsted, so this will be an adventure.
