I’m impressed with myself, because I finished the actual knitting part of Chianti in less than a week. It’s a REALLY quick knit. As far as I can tell, it works up similar to Citron, only it has sections of lace that make it seem to go faster. At least for me. :)
This is a bridesmaid gift for one of my bridesmaids. I had her pick a color and approve a pattern, and then I made it happen. She doesn’t get it until March, though.
A lot of people reported running out of yarn while making this shawl, so I dropped 2 rows of stockinette in each section except the last section. I bound off with the normal knitted bind off because for some reason sea silk really disliked the k2tog bindoff I usually use for stretchiness. I used a crochet hook to do it though, because it’s easier for me that way. :) And quicker.
The dropped rows were a success, by the way. I ended up with about 20 or so yards left.
