Wingspan Overdye Experiment

I was really nervous throwing this shawl I spent 2 years knitting into the dye vat. I knew by the time I finished it that I would never really be happy with the pink color, so I figured what the heck. Might as well dye it and see if it could turn into something that... Continue Reading →

Wingspan Finished!!!!

I can't believe it is finally done! It feels absolutely amazing to get this thing off of my needles. This project was cast on back in July of 2020. Over the past few years I have picked at it here and there, but it wasn't until this year that I really made it a priority... Continue Reading →

Wingspan progress (21)

I have been working on this almost nonstop since I decided to dye it. That one decision has completely changed how I feel about this whole project. It's no longer just a sea of annoying pink, it is a blank canvas for future creativity and experimentation! I'm trying not to get my hopes up too... Continue Reading →

Wingspan progress (20)

I know I said I was taking a break from this project, but I had a revelation and I am back at it already. I was chatting with a friend who has also knit this pattern, trying to untangle all of the things that were making me unhappy about my project. The biggest factor by... Continue Reading →

Wingspan progress (19)

Unless you look closely, it might be hard to tell this photo apart from the one I posted yesterday. The main difference is that I knit a couple extra rows and moved the lifeline up to the current row. That means I am officially at the decision point for which size I want to knit....

Wingspan progress (18)

I spent a lot of my weekend knitting time working on my wings. There's a lot of progress since the last time I checked in. In fact I am just a handful of short rows away from being finished with the medium size. Even though I am dying to get this project off of my... Continue Reading →

Wingspan progress (17)

I haven't made a ton of progress since my last post, but I wanted an excuse to share the full scale of the project. It has been a while since I posted a photo of the whole shawl, and you can really see how much it has grown since I started paying more attention to... Continue Reading →

Wingspan progress (16)

This is the progress I made on my Wingspan over the weekend. I managed to finish the first 10 row repeat and move my lifeline. That means I've added almost 100 stitches since the transition section, and it is starting to feel like more of a proper shawl size now. It is unlikely that I... Continue Reading →

Wingspan progress (15)

Here's my Wingspan progress from the last week. Most of my work on this shawl gets done over the weekend, when I can sit down, watch some podcasts, and pay attention to my knitting. I still have a long way to go, but I am proud of myself for sticking with it so well lately.... Continue Reading →

Wingspan progress (14)

I'm still working steadily on this shawl. Now that I'm past the transition section, the rows feel a lot less daunting. I'm even ok with all of the short rows, since at least they go by much more quickly than the full rows. My plan is to stop at the medium size, but I have... Continue Reading →

Wingspan progress (13)

I did it! I finished the painful transition section without dropping any stitches or messing anything up! Now I've moved my lifeline up to the current row and I'm ready to start on the last feather section. It is a bit deceptive because that "last" section is really about 2/3 of the shawl, but I... Continue Reading →

Wingspan progress (12)

I really pushed myself to work on this shawl over the weekend, and it paid off. The transition section is almost finished, with just a few more rows left to do. Unfortunately one of those rows has a large amount of complex cabling to deal with, so I am planning to set aside an entire... Continue Reading →
