Early September Unraveling

Apologies for not doing a better job of clearing off the chair before taking a picture of my knitting, but I’ve been sick (not COVID), and I wasn’t being especially observant.

At the halfway point of the Tour de France, I’m about halfway through the number of rows in Reyna. While the pattern says to block it somewhat aggressively when done, the shawl seems small at this point, but that can be hard to tell. I still have a good-size ball, but the shawl will start eating yarn from here on out. Also, the pattern seems less to break up my variegated yarn and more to cause it to flash, which while interesting, isn’t necessarily what I was looking for. It’s fine and I may love it yet. I don’t not love it currently, so I think that’s probably okay.

Reading-wise I’m not really concentrating on any one book, except maybe my Agatha Christie novel. I have a pretty good idea of whom the bad guy is, but I still have about a third of the book left to go to figure out what his deal is.

Head over to As Kat Knits to see what others are reading and crafting.

I like your shawl! (it is very U of M-ish with those maize and blue colors!) I really need to sit down and read more Agatha novels. I think it might be fun to work through Poirot this winter!

When I have made Reyna I have added rows; sometimes after getting up to the higher number of rows in the mesh I start back down, etc. I always use up all my yarn. Some of my Reynas are pretty small and some are bigger. I agree with Kat that the flashes of yellow are pretty nice and I hope you’ll grow to love it (or find someone who does to gift it to).

It’s a pretty color combination. I like the way the yellow and blue balance each other.
