Knit Picks Palette yarn in orange, US #5 bamboo needles, stitch markers
What was your inspiration?
I wanted to broaden my skills and try new things so I volunteered to test knit this pattern.
What are you most proud of?
That I actually finished the project, months after it was due. I learnt that I'm not a test knitter, but it was still good to finish this. I also didn't like the original color of the yarn so I dyed the finished shawl using Wilton Food Dyes and Vinegar at home, to get this vivid orange color.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
It's a very easy lovely pattern but because of the thin yarn and small needles, it's going to take a while to finish. Make this one of your long term projects that you keep coming to and don't get frustrated if you don't finish immediately. The finished product will be worth it.
