Started: 26th January 2007
Finished: 03rd February 2007
Yarn: Wolle Rödel Soft Merino, 100% superwash merino, colour #359
Needle: Two 4.5 mm Addi Turbo circs (using 2 circs method)
Pattern: Shedir from Knitty's Breast-Cancer Awareness Mini-Issue
Modification: Since I'm using bigger yarn and needles than called for, I did only 3 repeats of the cable pattern before decreasing
Yes, I finished off Shedir on Saturday night...and I'd been wearing it since. I can't exactly say that the pattern is fun to knit. It was quite a fair bit of work to knit all these cables...thank goodness I know how to cable without a cable needle, otherwise I'd have gone bonkers dealing with the extra needle (although I used 2 circs instead of dpns to knit this).
One of the nicest features that I find on Shedir is the crown decrease. It makes quite a nice pattern.
I might knit another Shedir some time in the future, but I think I'll go for a smaller gauge and better yarn. As for now, I'm satisfied with this one. :-)
And FYI, I had the yarn in my stash already and I'm not
yet cheating on the Knit from your Stash 2007!
