Do you remember this?
I started this shawl in March 2019 while in South Africa on a business trip. It is the Match & Move shawl by Martina Behm. It took me only a few weeks to realise that I had sadly miscalculated the yarn weights (due in part to having no scale with me on the trip and in part to being delusional – documented in the aptly titled post Numbers don’t lie).
I ended that post by noting that it was time to start ripping. In fact, I put the project in a bag and tucked it away. The yarn is from The Plucky Knitter, repurposed from a kit I purchased eons ago to make the Colour Affection shawl. This same yarn is carried by Loop in London, but they had a limited selection and it was near impossible to determine from the computer screen whether any of the shades might fit. The best approach, I determined, was to take the project with me to Loop and try out combinations in person. This never happened.
Eventually, I noticed that Loop had gotten more stock, and there was one colour which I thought might be interesting with the others. I decided that I was never going to get into town (this was well before Covid-19, so was very prescient). I purchased it on-line with the thought that I would make a pair of mitts with it if it didn’t work for the shawl.
Here is the yarn:
Does it work?
I don’t know. I can’t find the project.
It is GONE. LOST. NOT TO BE FOUND ANYWHERE.
One of the things about being in lockdown is that I have actually sort-of organised my stash. (Stash organisation does not count as housecleaning and is therefore still an acceptable behaviour.) Here it is:
In the process of stacking it all here, I looked in every box. The shawl is not there. I have decided that the only thing which might make the project show up will be the act of posting that I have lost it. Wish me luck!
