Finished Object - Vertices Unite
Hello, I am not sure which I prefer, starting a project or finishing a project. I am going to try and finish a couple of projects before the school summer holiday starts.
This weekend I completed knitting my Vertices Unite shawl designed by Stephen West. I wanted to make this shawl because it has a number of different techniques that I haven't done many times before, such as i-cord bind off, shaping, short rows and picking up stitches. I cast on this project just before travelling to Edinburgh for the weekend in May, I managed to make a big dent in section 1 whilst I was away. The pattern gives you two size options, I decided to challenge myself and make the larger size.
I have never managed to make such a large knitted item before so I thought it would take me much longer to finish....if I ever did :-)
Ready for the border
I really enjoyed knitting the i-cord bind off and it was so exciting seeing the shawl emerge off the needles.
The finished object...
The shawl is taller then me :-)

I am certainly going to be warm this winter.
