We’re within a week of finishing the Goldfish Memory Shawl, and I have a lot of catching up to do.
Many of you have been sharing progress in the Ravelry forum, and that has been the best encouragement to keep going when long sections of striping seem endless. This pattern changes often enough that I haven’t become frustrated with a sense that this shawl will never really end, but seeing how other Goldfish Memories are coming along inspires me to get through one more section.
One element that I’ve been toying with as we go along these striping sections has been shifting between breaking the yarn, and carrying it up the side. Generally, two rows gets the yarn carried, and wider stripes are seeing the yarn break. You may notice in this photo that some of my ends are long loops, rather than ends. I’ve been doing this so I don’t have to keep breaking and rejoining the yarn; the large loop gives room to cut the ends after blocking, and I’ll weave everything in later.
