- Pattern: Pendulum from Amy Miller
- Yarn: Anzula Nebula in Charcoal and Black Cherry (love the sparkle throughout these yarns)
- Modifications: The pattern recommends 5 stripes of each colour... I ended up knitting an extra stripe of the contrast colour which took the shawl width from 70" (width that the pattern was written for) to 84". I like the extra width, and think it will be nice and snuggly on chilly winter days.
- Tip: The pattern is written to use M1R and M1L increases. If I were to do-over I would use a yarn over increase. I found that the sides of the shawl are quite tight, and would have benfitted from a bit more 'give'.
Ooh and Jody had asked if this was going to be for me. Yes, yes it is (I say beaming from ear to ear :). I am extremely happy with how this turned out and enjoyed working on something for myself after a productive pre-Christmas gift knit marathon! Now hubby is telling me it's his turn; that he has been neglected. He's silly. But yes, I see some socks and slippers in his future.
Hope you are enjoying the long weekend.
