Fiber Arts Friday: Wingspan, part 9

Thanks to everyone for your suggestions and support regarding my Wingspan last month.


I confirmed that starting with the other end of the yarn should have resulted in a better transition.


So I decided to rip out what I knit with the second cake and re-knit starting with the other end.

After ripping it out and replacing on the needles... about 7 1/2 wedges from the first cake.


I am into wedge #8 and am pleased to point out that the cake transition in the middle of the last wedge on the right is no longer obvious.  :-D


I plan to knit wedges until I run out of yarn on this cake.  Hopefully that will result in a scarf that I'm much happier with.

Happy Fiber Arts Friday.

Yay! I am so happy to see it worked...wouldn't it have been awful if you frogged it and re-started and it turned out to still be obvious? (That has happened to me once with a pair of socks...good thing they hide under my pant legs).

So happy to see you are resolving the issue. I just finished the 2nd Wingspan and it is such a quick and fun pattern to knit. But I think I will stop at 2, and go find another fun pattern! I just love that yarn!

Nice job! It will be beautiful when it's finished now.
(Too bad you had to un-do so much work, but it's worth it!)

I'm glad you found a solution that works for you. I liked it before; I still like it now. :)

I like your re-knit so far. It's going to be a nice cozy shawl when it's done.

Looking wonderful! I've been eyeing this pattern off for a while but haven't been game..

Wow! I solute your courage to rip, and yes you're right, the result is totally worth it!

Great solution to the wingspan. I'd start mine, only I started a Celestarium instead. Oh bother...
