Well, it certainly has been a while since I tested a pattern!
So, you remember that handspun I was working on last week? I decided to keep it natural and use it for a shawl to compliment another piece I’m finishing up. The pattern I’m doing is called My heaven by Patusha, and it is incredibly beautiful. It’s a free pattern, too, so I figured I might as well start it!
So far, I’ve finished the first chart of the edging and I’m working on chart B (first repeat). It’s been a bit of a challenge so far - already had to rip it out and restart from the beginning once. This is my first time doing double-sided lace, too, so hopefully it turns out alright! I’ll keep updating as it grows.
Well…that was short-lived.
I’ve ripped it back a second time and decided that this pattern was not the right one for this yarn. I’ll find a second pattern to use instead.
