Two Posts, One Day...It's Gonna Pour!
The original pattern calls for 380 yards of worsted weight yarn. So far, I am on a second skein of 110 yard yarn. I started the new skein on the beginning of section 6, the knotted openwork section. I am thinking that I will need less yarn with the dk weight but, I am not sure, I will post it when I find out.
I do have plans to knit this again in a heavier weight cotton/wool blend. I have a yarn that I purchased a couple of years ago on Knit Picks on sale, it is called Main Line and the color is Red Velvet Cake, it is coming out of my stash of yarns.
I also decided to reknit Haruni by Emily Ross in a sock yarn. I have several of those and it will be my next project to knit. I will figure out which one I will be using after I finish this project.
For those of you interested in the silk shawl, I am being lazy, I still haven't blocked it. If I feel up to it today, I might get out the blocking board and have at it. I just hope I have enough space on the board to get it stretched out and blocked to the proper length and width. I have the biggest board they make and it needs extra space sometimes. I love that item. It is a must for any knitter.
