Lune Spread Out

I’ve managed to do a small amount of knitting lately, and mostly it’s been on Lune.  I do love the pattern, and I think I like how it’s coming out.  To give myself a better notion, I put it on a string and took some photos.  Here’s the whole thing, in a photo that gives a pretty good notion of the overall shape.

You can certainly see that this is one which is wide but not very deep.  This view also shows all five sections pretty clearly.  I love the lines of these sections.  The pattern on the side sections with the randomly scattered motifs shows pretty well, and I think I like it.  I tried it on.  It needs to be longer, and it needs to be blocked and needs a bit of a border.  The border called for is two garter ridges – I hope it will be enough.

The last row I knit was 399 stitches.  The rows are also gaining 8 stitches in every pair of rows, so it takes a while for the length of the piece to grow.  We’ll see how it goes.  I hope I keep on with it fairly rapidly, because I think it’s going to be a really interesting shawl when it’s done.  And I think I might well knit another Lune sometime in the future.

    Lune is absolutely gorgeous. I love the intricate lace scrolls in the center with eyelets throughout other panels. It’s all very exciting/thrilling to see it grow. I look forward to seeing it soar off the needles, Anne.

    Missing you! Hope the family drama is settling down and the doldrums are lifting. They’ve been hanging over me too – maybe it’s dog days, or something. Anyway, hope you are doing ok Anne – your knitting is as beautiful as ever.

    I am just back from vacation and catching up on my blog reading. I have surely missed your delightful dolls over the summer. Glad to be home and able to see them again.
