Proof Positive: Industrial Revolution
I've had my eye on the pattern Industrial Revolution for a while and it served nicely for my spring redo of bobbles. Certainly a better choice that what I did on my first attempt at a bobble project, which is a shawl that I just not one of my favorites.
I decided to knit this up in Loopy Solids in the Malachite colorway.
It's a steampunk pattern, designed to look like gears and makes a lovely small shawl. I used about 3.5 skeins. As you can see, it has quite a number of small bobbles and, while I can't say they are a technique I enjoy, I can get through them without too much blue language. It does invoke spokes and gears though, with many yarn overs.
The border is worked sideways, with the stitches increasing up and down. I blocked it gently here, if I were being more exact, I would have pinned each point more distinctly. I'm not sure I have quite that many pins in the house though.
All in all, I'm pleased with how it turned out. Gypsy had to add a paw or two of approval and so now I may never get gray cat hair out of it.
One officially down, five more academy projects this semester to go!
