Name: Miles to go before I sleep
Pattern: Percy Shawl by Sanne Kalkman
Needle: US 6 - 4.0 mm
Yarn: Garnstudio DROPS Fabel
I learned an important lesson while knitting this shawl: you should always read the whole pattern first. The biggest portion of the shawl was charted both right sides and wrong sides. And both sides had yarn overs and decreases and the pattern repeats were quite long. Uh-oh. I like to knit lace, even when it's complicated, but I need my all-purl-rows too. They give a nice break and a sense of fast progress. Knitting this shawl felt more like a chore because the lack of them.
But I managed to knit nice nupps this time! I knitted nupps in the Echo Flower shawl (currently hibernating) too, but they always turned out a bit wonky and I didn't like them at all. In this shawl I like them a lot. I think they look like they're supposed to and they are my favorite thing in this shawl:
