I went for another triangle - so glad I had those lifelines
It worked perfectly and once I decided for the 9th triangle I had it done in one evening.
Of course it wasn't all that smooth. I did miss putting one stitch on the lifeline as I found out when I had already casted off. I tried to fix that, but got weary of it and just sew the stitch into the shawl so it would unfold
Then I found another 'loose' stitch in the 8th triangle and I really wonder how I missed that one all the time
I sew that one into the shawl too. It is visable on one side but not the other - and even then you have to look really hard.
Do you see them?
Having finished, I don't quite like the little holes that appear in the final knitting of the shortened rows. The pattern said I could knit the stitches that appeared like they should be knitted wrapped, wrapped - but I don't have the experience to see that.
So I wondered at every stitch and decided to "just knit straight". I can logically asume that every 3th stitch (as one has the repeat 1sl2k) should be knitted wrapped, but as I messed up the stitches sometimes I couldn't really count on that
Yeah, I guess I'm a bit of a messy knitter. I'm glad this shawl allows for it
BTW there is still some yarn left
Even though I used thicker needles and added an extra triangle. So I guess it is safe to say that the said amount of yarn in the pattern is quite sufficient
Still no clue on what to do with the rest though... I could make a wrist warmer / bracelet but I really wonder whether I would ever wear that. Can one do a wrist warmer in the wingspan-style? That might be interesting to try
