WIP Wednesday - Show and Tell

Well there is progress to show you with the Shawl of My Own Invention.  Not as much as there could have been as I frogged back all I had done before and started over.  My first effort wasn't quite working for me so I had a bit of a re-think and started over.  I'm much happier with how it is going now.



My second piece of show and tell for this week is a swatch. I don't normally swatch but as I'm hoping that this yarn will turn into a top I will want to wear I thought I had better make the effort this time.  I am really loving the fabric this yarn is producing so I'm hoping that this top turns out well.

Sometimes Frogging a project can be the best thing, and by they way your shawl is looking, I think you made a good choice! :D

I can't wait to see your shawl. It looks like it's going to be amazing. And the blue? looks really pretty too.

That swatch is just the most perfect shade of blue.

That shawl is just marvellous, I love the colours and the pattern looks intriguing so far.

I'm glad your swatching is making a nice fabric, I hop the top will work out just as well!

I'm sorry you had to frog your project, but at least your (new) project will be better off for it. :)

Gorgeous yarns, too!!

Thanks for all the comments.

I spent yesterday evening working on the shawl and I am really loving the way the colours are going.

I'm hoping to get some time to work on my top very soon. I too love the blue, on my PC the colour is pretty accurate to real life.

The shawl looks great. I know it's always so hard to frog, even a few rows, but I'm sure you'll be glad you did.

I agree with the others that your shawl now looks really lovely - great colours. Frogging can be quite liberating :)
