It’s A Wrap!
And no, I don’t mean the Presidential election. As of this writing, it’s still up in the air.
Yes, the Primordial Sworls Wrap is published. Even natural lighting doesn’t show it off as beautiful as it is. But the pattern, yes, it’s a wrap.
Yes, It’s A Wrap – Really!
Please ignore all my “advice” about photographing your knitwear from my last post. I can NOT get a decent photo that shows the stitch definition and the color at the same time.
This garment is impossible to photograph well. I honestly wish I had a woman-friend. One that would make the shawl look more alive. And show off how it could make someone better looking just by wearing it. Anyone want to try on this beauty and do a photo shoot?
A mannequin bust is the best I could do.
It seems I can either show off the texture/drape/stitch design. Or I can show off the gorgeous colors. But not both.
After blocking, the shawl ended up being about 20″ (50 cm) wide and 75″ (190 cm). Given how much variation there can be in yarn choice the effects of blocking, I’ve set the gauge in the pattern to be measured before blocking. That way, if you’re getting gauge while you knit, it’s all good. It seems the garment could be even more aggressively blocked than I did. But, I’ve very fond of the final fabric of this wrap.
The pattern is up and live on Ravelry priced at US$5.00. I would be very grateful if you could add it to your favorites, or your queue. Or better yet purchase and make the wrap (and of course, add it to your Projects on Ravelry).
Last week, I ordered two colorways of Uneek Sock yarn from The Perfect Purl.
I purchased them with the intention of making a second Primordial Sworls Wrap. So this was my calming project last night.
Loving it so far and this yarn changes in such beautifully long color lengths.
I also made some progress on the Shaker Rib Cardigan.
I grafted the right-front shoulder seam and even started the left front.
So it looks like I’ll be sharing my knitting time between two projects again.
How are you doing?
