What's on my needles - Wedding Shawl
I've been working on this project off and on for a couple of months, but alas, the fate of this special garment accessory is uncertain. The big looming question is "do I have enough yarn?" I was eager to try the pattern and selected a beautiful colored fine gauge yarn from my collection.
The suspect but disappointing verdict is appearing more certain with each knitted row. There isn't sufficient yarn for this lovely piece to grow long enough to wrap around a person's shoulders. Maybe it will have enough length for a ... scarf?? I like the pattern a lot so I'll be procuring sufficient yarn to knit the entire full length shawl.
Here's the pattern for the wedding shawl. It's a good idea to check yardage requirements before you begin. Ha Ha.
