It has been a long time… But I have been getting used to 3 little ones running around my house. Yes, the littlest one is also crawling, making nothing safe, and no time peaceful. But in the evenings I have been managing to do some knitting here and there. And I have gotten over the problem that I mentioned last time. Do you even remember? Can’t blame you if you don’t. I was having some issues with not wanting to finish my current projects. I stop working on them, just so they won’t get finished. It really is something like saying goodbye to a dear friend, even though, since these projects stay with me, I won’t actually have to miss them. I know, it is complicated. But all of this, just to say that I actually did finish some projects. As we speak, Hippo Gnu Deer designed by MMario is blocking on my floor upstairs, and the 22 leaves shawlette, designed by Lankakomero is drying on the blocking frame at the other side of the house. I don’t have pictures of those two yet, but I do have a picture of this:
Yep, Wingspan is truly finished. It was a fun, simple pattern, pretty well written, though if I made it again I would probably wrap the short rows. I just think it provides a slightly neater look, even though most people don’t really see the difference. I made it 9 wedges, instead of 8, as I wanted to use up as much of the yarn as I could. Poem works really well for this pattern. The yarn has some thicker and thinner parts (though not like a novelty thick/thin yarn, much more irregular), which would have really bugged me if I had continued to use it for the socks I had initially intended for. Some people might really like it, but I could do without the thicker/thinner parts. The colors are absolutely gorgeous, and as wingspan it works really, really wel.
