Knitting · Shawls

The Gloomy Ulmus

I am a big fan of designs by Kirsten Kapur, and have several patterns, but I didn’t enjoy knitting this one. It looks nice, feels nice, but I had several issues and they just seemed to keep coming. I didn’t pick colors for this shawl, but for another and they were far gloomier than they looked online. Then the body of this pattern was very boring to me and after that I ran out of yarn @10 rows to the end. My edge is too short but it does look fine, so I should stop complaining, but maybe it’s just too soon.

Anywho, here are my pictures…. gloomy pictures….
