Work In Progress- Revontuli

Back in October 2009, I knitted and felted this little number for my grad school classmate's wedding.




I used the free Booga Bag pattern from Black Sheep Bags and Kauni Wool 8/2 solids yarn in color EF that changes colors as you knit into shades of blue, purple, mauve and green. The whole back took less than one skein of yarn to knit up, and I couldn't let such a beautiful yarn go to waste, so in January, I began knitting Revontuli (a shawl) with the remaining yarn.

The pattern is made up of 3 knitting charts that use various symbols to represent different knit stitches. I have been following several Revontuli knit-along groups on Ravelry and modified the make 1 right and left stitches (m1R, m1L) and replaced them with yarn overs (yo) which makes that nice, zig-zag hole pattern.

Four days into my knitting, I got through Charts 1 and 2 and ran out of yarn before I could start chart 3.



And just my luck, when I ordered another skein of yarn I accidentally asked for the wrong color. So, this project is currently on hold while I wait for another skein of yarn in the right color.
