I have been wanting to make the Acadian Shawl for quite some time.
I've also felt that the Yak/Merino yarn that Hubba brought back from Japan a few years ago was what I needed to use. I'm short on the recommended supply. So I let this pattern percolate with other yarn for a while, but the heart wants what the heart wants.... so I cast on last December.
I am using smaller needles and have three balls. The pattern is written in three sections and all three balls have been weighed. I plan to mark the end of the first ball and then make sure I am at the similar point on the return section prior to starting ball #3. Hopefully this will work out.
As you can see, I was well into this scarf when I learned that I was purling incorrectly... and this has been a more "off" than "on" type project, so I added a life-line just in case I did not remember how to purl incorrectly. ;-)
Things are going quite well, and much faster than the Forever Wingspan... amazing what fatter yarn and bigger needles will do for you...
and fortunately I did remember how to purl incorrectly. ;-)
Happy Fiber Arts Friday.
