FO Friday – Muh Muhs Shawl

My Muh-Muhs Shawl has made it to the blocking board!  I’m really happy with the outcome, I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about a bulky weight shawl!  The pattern was designed for bulky yarn so perhaps that helps.  Scaling up a fingering weight pattern isn’t quite the same.  There’s a lot to be lost in translation.

I followed the pattern as designed – no mods.  I would change the actual pattern if I was the designer though.  The lace is not charted.  That makes me a little crazy.  I feel bad for the staunch chart haters.  It’s so helpful to see how stitches stack from one row to the next.  I love charts.  I wish this pattern had included a chart.  Oh well.  I managed to survive.

The remarkable part of this project is the yarn.  Taria Tweed, a 40% merino, 30% silk, 30% llama.  It’s lovely.  I really enjoyed it.  Sadly, that means it’s been discontinued.  D’oh!  That’s what I get for letting it linger in the stash so long before using it.  I have no idea how THAT happened…

This is the 2016 Stash Flash from January.  I blacked out what I’ve used so far this year.  I’ve still got some work to do.  :)

    Beautiful shawl. Really like the colors. I like the touch of green on the final edge. And, . . .
    That is some stash! The greyt spouse thinks mine is bad. I will have to show him yours. Hehe!

    1. Drat! You just reminded me that I did modify the pattern! I was going to run short of the off white yarn during the bind off, so I subbed the green yarn and did an Icelandic bind off to highlight my color change! I was so pleased with that…so quickly I forgot!
