Sometimes, the best laid plans don’t work out.
In this case, the chosen yarn was just not right for the project.
I purchased Mamachee’s Busy Bitch Shawl pattern (which I am going to call Busy Girl Shawl…I am not a fan of the given name) and planned on using a skein of Expression Fiber Arts shimmering cashmere/silk yarn.
Hmmmm, it just didn’t work.
A while back, I had started Caitlyn Ffrench’s Terrible Simple knit shawl using Schachenmayr Bravo Color yarn. It has sat untouched for quite a while.
Neither of these projects were working for me (I do plan on finishing the Terribly Simple shawl).
So, I used the Shachenmayr yarn for my Busy Girl Shawl.
Score, it worked well!
Loved making this pattern!
Well written and easy, worth the price as I know for a fact I will be making another.
I know I’ll be making another due to another problem.
Either I have a huge noggin or the designer has a tiny noggin.
There is NO way this fits over my head without causing injury.
Luckily, it fits Miss ME!
I plan on using the Expression Fiber Arts yarn for a simple scarf . Honestly, I have had a very hard time finding a project to use this yarn for. Any ideas would be great (I have about 300 yards)!
Happy Knitting & Crocheting!
