WIP Weds 5/8/13 ~ Eliina

Today I want to show off the Eliina shawl, because while it’s gotten a little repetitive and sometimes boring to knit, I do love the way it’s turning out. There’s only one problem: it’s really, REALLY hard to see the progress in pictures.

So instead of showing progress, I took some sunlight photos of the shawl that show off what I love about it most: the color changes. The other pictures I’ve taken of this shawl look good, but it really looks best in the sun.

It’s been fun watching the colors change. There are so many different long color repeat yarns these days! I love them. One interesting thing for me has always been determining when the sequence repeats. I haven’t found it yet with this one. That could be because it’s a cobweb weight yarn and the skein has so much of it (look at the below picture – I have tons left still!), or it could be that I have become overwhelmed with the size of this thing and haven’t seen the repeat because the width of the stripes have changed, throwing me off. I don’t think so, though. I think it just hasn’t repeated yet.

I am enjoying this shawl. I will enjoy it more when it is finished, but for now it’s at least an enjoyable way to pass the time knitting something I don’t really have to think about. The part I really don’t want to think about is how much yarn is left, and how much more time I could potentially spend knitting this thing.

I’ll just get lost in the pretty colors and try to focus on that.
