FO: Mrs Tumnus shawl 2013

Post by Admin on Sun Sep 15, 2013 5:06 am

2013 2013 2013 <div style="text-align: justify;">Back in February, Eskimimi release a <a href="http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/mrs-tumnus">gorgeous shawl pattern</a> inspired by C.S. Lewis's Narnia book, <i>The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe</i>, specifically by the character Mr Tumnus and his red scarf. As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to knit it, so when Mimi decided to <a href="http://www.ravelry.com/groups/eskimimi-makes">host a KAL</a>&nbsp;I jumped at the chance.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://images4-b.ravelrycache.com/uploads/supertinks/150396855/skein_queen_blush_medium2.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><img border="0" height="237" src="http://images4-b.ravelrycache.com/uploads/supertinks/150396855/skein_queen_blush_medium2.jpg" width="400" /></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;">Skein Queen Blush</td></tr></tbody></table><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">I decided to get my yarn at Unravel, as I didn't have anything suitable in my stash. The lovely Nat over at <a href="http://www.misadventuresincraft.com/">Misadventures in Craft</a> helped me choose this gorgeous red merino/cashmere blend. I was worried about yardage, as it's a sport weight rather than fingering and to get gauge I had to use 5mm needles. A few people in the KAL talked about running out of yarn, or almost running out.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Turns out I shouldn't have worried! I ended up using only 363 yards, including my excessively over-estimated long tail cast on.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://images4.ravelrycache.com/uploads/supertinks/170698409/DSC03328_medium2.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="400" src="http://images4.ravelrycache.com/uploads/supertinks/170698409/DSC03328_medium2.JPG" width="375" /></a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br />The shawl is knit from the outside in, which meant the cast on and first few rows were tortuous. It took hours to do just a couple of rows! Which explains a lot why I cast on in March and when I picked it back up a couple of weeks ago, I had only knit about 15 rows.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Fortunately, as the border grew, the pattern suddenly made sense and I sped up significantly.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://images4-b.ravelrycache.com/uploads/supertinks/170698406/DSC03329S_medium2.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="300" src="http://images4-b.ravelrycache.com/uploads/supertinks/170698406/DSC03329S_medium2.jpg" width="400" /></a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">The shawl is an interesting horseshoe shape, which is created by using short rows to knit the body once the border is finished. I whizzed through the short rows and the closer I got to finishing the more I wanted to finish. Even before blocking it was beautiful, but now... well, I just love it to bits.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://images4.ravelrycache.com/uploads/supertinks/170698408/DSC03332_medium2.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="400" src="http://images4.ravelrycache.com/uploads/supertinks/170698408/DSC03332_medium2.JPG" width="300" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://images4-b.ravelrycache.com/uploads/supertinks/171015735/DSC03348S_medium2.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="257" src="http://images4-b.ravelrycache.com/uploads/supertinks/171015735/DSC03348S_medium2.jpg" width="400" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><br> 2013 2013 2013 <br><div style="text-align: justify;">Back in February, Eskimimi release a <a href="http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/mrs-tumnus">gorgeous shawl pattern</a> inspired by C.S.
