My second time knitting the Sherilyn pattern from Ysolda I thought I was being so smart by knowing exactly how much yarn I would need based on my first version. Turns out my calculations must have been wrong (the skeins probably were heavier with more yardage than listed, so I'd used more yarn than I thought), and I had to leave out two rows from section 4 in order to not run out of yarn. My plan B was to use a different yarn to finish off the shawl, but since it lasted this far, I figured it might be better just to skip a couple of rows that weren't critical. I think the Wollmeise Pure in the Ooohm colorway makes a perfect spring shawl.

  1. Stunning! The color, the knitting, the photography. I especially love that top pic where you show the back peeking through. You'd never know all the drama you experienced with the yarn.

    Well done.

    1. LOL, drama might be a strong word, although it does always make a knitter nervous to be about to run out of yarn.
