FO Friday – Trinity Shawl

If you hadn’t guessed, yesterday’s flurry of progress was thanks to my finished Trinity Shawl.  I don’t like looming deadlines.  I do not thrive and produce my best work under pressure, so when I get a custom knitting order for my Etsy Shop, it becomes the primary focus.  I’m actually amazed how quickly this one went.  A week from the first email discussing color to the blocking board!

This is the laciest thing I’ve knit since switching from English to Continental two years ago.  It flew off the needles.  The pattern is Trinity Shawl by Kira K, a local bay area designer.  It’s based on the trinity stitch, which has a very easy repeat.  It developed a rhythm quickly and easily.  A lot it was the stitch pattern but switching to Continental gets half the credit too.  WOW!

I used to always say, I’m not a fast knitter, I just devote a lot of time to it.   I think I’ve finally gotten to the point where I am comfortable saying I’m a fast knitter.  This went so quick.

And so it’s done, 8 days before my shipping deadline which was padded by 4 days.  Perfect!  I think the Rhinebeck Sweater may even get debuted a week early!
