Highland Triangle #1 Finished!!


Ta Da! (Click for a bigger pic.) I finished Highland Triangle #1. Only 2 more to go! This pattern was actually quite enjoyable to knit, and it wasn't a bad introduction to lace. I used about 3/4 of a cone of Brown Sheep Nature Spun, on US 10 Denise circulars. I have to say I was surprised by how big it came out. I wasn't expecting something this wide. But that does make it very snuggly. Considering that I didn't touch this for weeks at a time, I was also surprised by how fast it knit up. I started it in the middle of October, and I finished it right at the end of December. My hope is that I will be able to speed things up a bit on the next two. And I already started the next one.

Dang! Thats a lot of knitting. I get sidetracked and don't want to do it anymore, then pick it up months later. You're very persistent.

I can't seem to hit the gauge for this one... did you use the worsted, sport or fingering weight?

I used sport weight, and I kind of fudged on the gauge. I would recommend trying out the lace pattern and seeing whether you like it.

Hi Beth! You know we're making one for you, right? They're going to be for the 3 bridesmaids, you, and me.
