Shetland Bound Shawl

The write up of the Shetland Bound project will come together after I finish knitting and blocking. In the meantime, I’m adding project notes to the photos.

The color is funky in this photo, but is shows the striping in the yarn. I’m not a fan, so there’s overdyeing in my future. I’m going to do a quick dip in turquiose to even things out. Fortunately, my turquoise is really fussy about attaching, so it should strike mainly on the light sections. I’m sad to mute the darker variations, but the striping is fingernails on a blackboard! I should handpaint out the pale stripes, but this is just a test knit before going to the lighterweight yarn. Most likely it will end up in the spare scarf bin.
