What Do You Think?
On to Icarus. I had thought to make it from 8/2 Tencel but I did not like the way it knit up, so I started it in a very fine lacewieght Zenga Baruffa merino. I have 1460 yds (100 gram ball) and the yarn used in the IK sample was 875 yds in a 100 gram ball, so mine is almost half as fine. I"m also using size 2 needles instead of size 3.
This image shows where I am on row 22 of chart 1 - do you think it's the right size for being at this point? it' s looking so tiny. The part on the needles is about 6.5 inches wide right now, unstretched. I know I have to do at least one if not two increases to make the shawl bigger than as shown in IK.
So, what do you all think? too tiny? just right? goldilocks needs some help over here :0)
