I really enjoyed knitting Romi Hill's Carson pattern (except maybe for the lace edging, when I just wanted to be done already, there were so many stitches on one row). The way the two-colored section works is so genius and simple at the same time. I think I want to knit this pattern again, with a different color combination. Choosing Wollmeise Pure in colorways Wolke WD and Grashüpfer WD (both colors I received in a grab bag as surprise skeins, neither color necessarily being something I would have chosen myself originally) may have been a surprising move from me. I really enjoyed knitting with these colors, but I have to say the finished shawl, while pretty, is probably something I will not end up wearing myself. It will likely end up being gifted to someone who is more comfortable wearing this color combination. That's fine, though. If I really end up knitting 12+ shawls again this year, I don't think I need that many new ones for myself, anyway.
