prime time blue bliss
"Nancy and Judy" on size 10.5 needles which led to a problem with the center of the shawl peaking due to elongation of the gauge I blocked it twice to try and control it but the yarn was having none of it. It doesn't affect the functionality of the shawl too much, pulls back off the shoulders a bit. If I was going to knit it again with worsted I would add an extra center increase every 5th row at least for the first third of the shawl to compensate. I also knit an entire extra repeat of the larger pattern at the end to extend it a some.
YarnArt Stripe Colors 120 yards x 6 (plus I ran out during bind off and had to nick a couple of yards from the 7th ball. I'm making a tea pot cosy out of the last two balls :)
