Half-finished Elinor Shawlette in pink

140423 Elinor Shawlette

I have finished knitting more than half of my pink Elinor Shawlette! Last weekend I finally made a decision on how to work the middle section and now it’s smooth sailing. I settled on some left-over fingering weight shetland yarn in purple. It matches the colours of the colour-gradient yarn quite nicely and I like the sharply defined colour change in contrast to the slowly shifting colours of the main yarn. After picking up the last short rows Elinor will be getting faster to knit with every row. I’m already looking forward to it. I’ve really come to enjoy varying speed (aka. row lengths) in a knit. I also played around with different ways of explaning the short row section and I think I found a much easier way to put and work it. More in the soon-coming knitting pattern update for the Elinor Shawlette.
