Loopy Academy, Texture

I’ve finished the center portion of my Glace Bay shawl.  As you can see, it wants to roll up a bit!  I’ve got to add the pleated edging next and if the top edge is still rolling (which it probably will be), I’ll do something there too.

The center pattern was really fun to knit.  Once I got a feel for it, it was really just a matter of reading my knitting to make sure I was staying on track.  The stitch pattern itself was relaxing to knit and I was able to watch TV easily while I worked it.

I’m using Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks That Rock Heavyweight in Big Brain Blue for this project and while it’s hand dyed, I haven’t been alternating skeins.  I actually almost came to the end of the first skein as I finished up this central section, so I’ll start the edging with the second skein and any color differences should be hidden by the textural differences.  I did look at both skeins very carefully before I started, and at least in skein form, they looked identical.  Whether or not they knit up that way, only time will tell...
