One WIP

I have a bunch of WIPs (Work-in-Progress[s]) and this one is one of my favorites. I always seem to have some lace shawl going on. The shawl is called Moonlight Sonata and can be found here.

Here’s what it looks like, unpinned. after one repeat of the second chart:

Here it is pinned:

And here’s a close-up of the motif:

It’s grown since I took pictures yesterday, though. I plan to use up my two skeins of Shadow Kettle-Dyed (trying to use up my stash).

I love this project, but it is probably one of the most challenging I’ve faced so far. Why? Because I keep having to go back and fix mistakes. The first time I attempted the Moonlight Sonata… Well, it ended in a completely frogged shawl. It was so beautiful, that I forgave it and decided I would try it again later.

Fastforward to me buying the yarn. It was supposed to be a Whisper Cardigan (Ravelry link), but I didn’t like how it was coming out, so I frogged it. Then I tried to design a lace scarf in crochet. I didn’t even get half-way before Christmas knitting hit me hard and it fell to the way-side.

I kept looking at that scarf guiltily, but I knew I was never going to finish it. So I am frogging it as I knit my shawl, and I am so much happier.  I can’t wait to have a full-sized, lace-weight shawl for myself!
