FO Friday: Dark Wingspan

This week I was finally able to finish my Wingspan. I used almost every scrap of yarn on this baby. I had only a yard left! I was definitely sweating it towards the end.


Wingspan is recommended to be knitted in a sock yarn with long color changes. Instead, I chose to use a self-striping yarn. Cherry Tree Hill Fingerpaints Self-striping in the colorway Name Your Poison. (Love that name!) I definitely am glad I chose the yarn I did. I think it makes my own version even more my own.

 I also chose not to block the shawl out to sharp points at the end. I'm loving the right angles of the triangles. Hopefully, I'll be able to post some modeled pictures in the near future.

  4. It turned out beautifully! I hate that sick feeling you get when you're binding off with that little yarn left, but it's such a rush when you actually make it! Why yes, I am a total dork. Why do you ask? Happy weekend!

  7. It looks beautiful!
    And I LOVE when there's only a tiny bit of yarn left. It's terrifying when you're actually working that final row or so, but once you're done you feel very resourceful ^_^

  8. It is really striking! I'm glad you were able to finish it with the yarn. Those moments of panic towards the end are kind of exciting (like a roller coaster rush!).
