Clementine Shawlette

Started: 11th May 2007

Finished: 09th June 2007

Needles: 3 mm / 60 cm Inox circs

Yarn: Rohrspatz & Wollmeise sock yarn, "Drachenblut"

Pattern: Clementine Shawlette by Michele Rose Orne from Interweave KNITS Spring 2007

 

I used about 0.75 of the yarn, so I still have a quite a bit left. The pattern said that it should be blocked lightly to the size of 10 3/4" wide and 57 1/4" long. However, I totally blocked it out and I get 13" wide and 71" long....I quite like it blocked out like this. ;-)

    oooooh pretty! awesome job, looks perfect for keeping warm stylishly!

    @fbz_: Thanks! I have to think about how to take a better photo (probably will have to model it), since it's too big to fit in my light-box and It's soooo soft now after blocking that it wouldn't hold up. ;-p
  • Annkari 8y

    Yes, a modelled photo please!

    I'm still not sure if I want to knit one, but yours looks so pretty ... Was one skein of Wollmeise enough?
  • elemmaciltur 8y

    @Annkari: Yeah, I'll try and do a model photo or get one of the SnBers to model for me. And one hank of Wollmeise sock yarn was more than enough. I used about 0.75 skein of it.

    Nice work! Wollmeise yarn works well with that pattern.

    echt mooi!
  • cauchy09 8y

    Oh, how lovely! And you finished it pretty quickly, too. Congrats!

    @Mevrouw Walvis: Thanks! At first I thought that the variegation would make it looks too busy and would drown the ridges, but I think I like it like this because it makes you look twice. ;-)

    @Yarnissima: Dank je wel!

    @cauchy09: Thanks! Yeah, well, I worked on it pretty constantly....that's why it's finished pretty quickly. Besides, the pattern is easy to remember once you get past all the decreases and increases.

  • bookgrump 8y

    That's gorgeous! Funny how you can see something in a book or magazine and be unimpressed, but then have a different reaction when someone else makes it and photographs it. I'm putting this on my list!
  • elemmaciltur 8y

    @bookgrump: Ahhhhh...another person to be added to my list of Clementine-Enabled. :-p
  • Shannon Geddes 8y

    Wow! This turned out wonderful. I might have to try this with one of my skeins I have stashed away. did you make any pattern modifications?
  • elemmaciltur 8y

    @sbgeddes: You mean with your Wollmeise? Which colourway? No, I didn't make any modification whatsoever.
  • Shannon Geddes 8y

    Yes - I recently got an order of six skeins. I'm not sure which I'll use. I need to go take some photos of the wollmeise too. I got a sample set too because I love your photos!
  • elemmaciltur 8y

    @sbgeddes: Oooooh, can't wait to see which colourways you got!
