My first real process knit, the Forest Canopy Shawl, is finally completed. I finished her (why I’ve decided that it’s a she is beyond me) yesterday. She still needs a good blocking, and you can’t see the points very well. In addition, it should grow some when I block it, and you’ll be able to see the pattern much better.
But, a sneak peak at my first process knit, a Christmas gift for my mother-in-law (so Nancy, if you are reading this, look away!)
I have to say, this shawl might have made a process knitting convert out of me. It was relaxing to knit. Calming. And though I adore the finished product, and hope my mother-in-law will, too, I really enjoyed making it most of all.
This also means that I am only working on two things now! I decided to frog the bedtime handbag in favor of a different yarn and different needles, at a different time. I had considered starting a Clapotis, but am going to wait on that, too.
What a quandry I’m in now. I still need to finish one Eleanor sock and my Cardigan for Arwen. But neither are really a process knit, and I’m sad that I don’t have one on the needles.
Any suggestions, fellow knitters?
