I have finished the first color section and I just added the second color in a fading section. I really like this pattern as the fading instructions are really easy to follow. And the i-cord like edge helps me carry my yarn up the edge to reduce ends.
The pattern has two versions, a fringed version and a plain version. I think I am going to go for gusto and do the fringed version. Which is a little out of my norm but I am here for it. It’s very mentally satisfying to see how fast holding sock yarn double eats up the yarn cake. I am slowing down a little as the rows do get longer every other row.
I did end up swapping out one of my color choices for a last minute addition. My gut told me to do it so I just went with it. I decided my final combo would be Hue Loco Spun Sock in “Skip With Me” (my first color), Twisted Owl Fiber Studio Super Sock 4 ply in “Razz-Ma-Tazz” and finally Into The Whirled Meridian Sock in “Scissors Lizard Spock”.
I have the tiniest of the tab of the beginning of the shawl. This project does have you hold the yarn double. My needles aren’t the sharpest so I have to be careful to make sure I grab both strands. But otherwise, I REALLY love this project. It eats yarn sooooooo fast and I can’t wait to get to the first color fade.
