Since my spinning wheel isn’t easily portable, I’ve been working on finishing up my purple Josephine shawl when I’m away from home. I’m past the center section now, and I’ve started the first end charts. The endings are a bit more intricate than the main body of the shawl, so it’s been exciting to see a different pattern emerging. I was also finally able to get a pretty accurate picture of the purple color.
I can’t wait to finish this shawl in the next few weeks, but there’s still a lot of knitting on it to do. I have to complete the end charts at both ends, and then do a knitted-on edging around the whole thing. It’ll be worth it in the end, but 4 months is a long time to work on the same lace project. I’m ready for a new lace project.
