More Wollmeise Love

Although I’ve had my fickle moments, one thing is certain, my initial love for Wollmeise hasn’t waned or dissipated in any way whatsoever. It is still one of my all-time favorite go-to yarns, in particular the 100% SW merino for shawls. The colors are amazing no matter what. Even if it’s a color I usually don’t like, I still find myself looking at a skein of Wollmeise twice. And I can always tell when a pattern has been knit up in Wollmeise. It just screams “color” and I love it! Particularly for Spring when I want pops of color in my wardrobe. Though who am I kidding? I like pops of color all year round! It just seems less strange to say that I like it in Spring more. Yeah. That’s it. 😉

Wast Side Shawl - FINISHED

That bit of gorgeous up there is my new Wast Side Shawl that I started knitting for Ravelympics back in February. I haven’t really picked it up in weeks and finally decided it just needed to be finished! After just a few days or so of knitting on it, it’s done and it’s lovely!

I love how it looks on me! The pattern is so beautiful! This one is knit from the edging up and I do have to admit to being very bored of the edging and being very anxious to start up on the body. That being said, this is probably one of the easiest shawls I have done. SO easy to memorize. I don’t think I looked at the pattern after a single repeat of any of the areas. Very quick and easy to do. And my favorite part? The dreaded edging that I hated to knit up, of course!

I would highly recommend this pattern… as highly as I recommend Wollmeise in fact, and you all know how highly that praise comes.

I can’t wait to block this one out as it will look a billion times more lovely blocked out than it does scrunched up, I’m sure. 🙂

    That is absolutely gorgeous. Both of them are, actually. I keep hanging on to my WM because I’m scared to use it up. Time to break it out I think!

    I agree with you on the color that pops = wollmeise. There’s nothing like it!
