More Veera Välimäki designs! Supporting a fellow Finn, I went for her Stripe Study Shawl. This is actually a fairly patriotic finished object, since also the yarn, Ohut Pirkkalanka by Pirkanmaan kotityö, is local, in fact from the same town I live in. I have, umm, should I say, a moderate selection of colors of that yarn in my stash. Choosing the color combination was a challenge, and I'm not 100% sure I made the right decision. I like the shawl as it is, but it may not be that wearable. I think replacing the teal with the green option that made it to the top three colors may have been a more practical choice. Well, who's to say I couldn't knit another one with different colors!
This was very enjoyable to knit, and a pretty genius construction with the short row stripes. In fact, I would love to knit another one.
