WIP: Texture Time Kal

So beginning of last month I took the scary plunge and joined a mystery knit along. These can be a gamble as you have no idea what you are going to be knitting. You receive a few clues over a few weeks and then tadaaa the item is revealed in full.

Now I got completely excitedly into this particular one. Clue 1 was syndicated brioche with an excited shape and use of colours. I love the bit I made with clue one and clue 2 taught me a new technique which was fun to learn and I liked how this looked too and was excited about the wrap.

But then clue 3 and 4 looked lazy and weird in combination with this awesome centre piece. I never finished clue 2 after seeing clue 3 and now feel completely demotivated to finish the item. This is a shame because initially it was really fun to see this shawl be revealed. I should have waited. I know what I am like and I like putting my own mark on things which is hard when you don’t know the finished design and what yarn may look good or may be showcased how.

As the first clue had loads of ends unravelling is not really an option for me. So I will probably just leave the item and decide to maybe incorporate it into my handmade blanket. Actually thinking of it that is a good idea! Sometimes you just need to write something out.
