Shetland Triangle

Oh my! Some actual knitting in my knitting blog. Weird. Spooky really.
Shetland Triangle 2
Pattern: Shetland Triangle by Evelyn Clark (from the book Wrap Style)
Yarn: Novita Bambu (68%bamboo, 32% cotton) less than 3 skeins
Needles: 4,5mm
Mood: quite happy with it
Yep, in the picture it's on a dumbster. Not to worry, it was never in it. I started knitting this on the 16th and finished on the 22nd. I liked this yarn for this project, but I'm thinking maybe I should have used a bit bigger needles. Maybe 5mm. It came out a little smaller than I would have hoped. The top measures about 140cm. Maybe I should have stretched it a little more when blocking. Anyhow, I still like it.

Impossibile to take good pictures just by myself. I think it's the perfect size when worn as in the picture. But it is a little too small for my taste when worn on my shoulders as I am doing in a wedding tomorrow. Again this is something I can very well live with.
Almost forgot to mention: I'm not sure how much I like these kinds of scarf patterns where the number of stitches keeps adding and adding. I start to feel like it's never going to end. Maybe that's just me. But that's why I liked ene. First you cast on an insane amount of stitches, but through out they just dissapear.

So pretty. It reminds me of a spider web. So delicate.
