Oh The Laces You Will Go Test Knit by Sew Perfect Purls

  • Oh The Laces You Will Go

Of all the places that I could be, I found the Laces on…Instagram. It just so happened that I was scrolling along when I saw Haleigh Overseth’s awesome, Β Oh The Laces You Will Go design. Her beautiful, orange and grey shawl caught my attention immediately. I quickly asked if I could be a test knitter for this shawl.

Oh The Laces You Will Go fit perfectly into the pi shawl along I have been hosting since August 1st. I was excited to start this project, especially since I was somewhat less in love with my Vortex shawl. That’s not exactly a pattern issue, it is more of an inconsistent handspun issue.

The Project

I used Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light in Thunderstorm and Silver Fox. On the podcast, the lights make the light grey look white, but in person and the photos, you can see that it is definitely grey. I have heard that the more saturated MadTosh colors have a tendency to bleed, but that was not a problem for me.

One notable change, however, is that I did use a larger size needle then requested. This was knit using my Knit Picks interchangeable needles on a US size 4. I think it makes for a nice fabric with an incredible drape.

The Pi Shawl Along

Even though my project is complete there is still more time to be included in this knit along. To take part just head over to the Ravelry groupΒ . For more information on this knit along please check out my previous post here.

Just Give Me Pi-Sew Perfect Purls Pi Shawl Knit Along

half pi shawl

Ready. Set. Go! Or, not. There’s no rush for this knit along, it’s just as sweet as pi. That s right, this is a Pi Shawl Along that I am hosting in the Sew Perfect Purls Podcast Ravelry Group. From August 1st to October 1st I am dedicating a knit along entirely to the graceful, elegance of any pi shawl or half pi shawl of your choice.

What Is A Pi Shawl?

A Pi shawl is a circular shawl with minimal shaping rows. I’ve inserted some pictures from Ravelry to give you an example. I am obligated to say that at this point this is not a monetized blog, and this picture was taken as a screenshot from Ravelry. It is in no way my intention to take pictures that are not mine this is just an example of the patterns you can choose from.

What Am I Knitting

I am knitting two different shawls. I hope to be done with both by the deadline, so my fingers are crossed.

Pi shawl test knit

First up is a test knit for Haleigh Overseth. She will be releasing her Oh, The Laces You Will Go pattern in September. This is a beautiful half pi shawl pattern with a little Dr. Seuss inspiration. It was a happy coincidence that I caught her call for test knitters post on Instagram, and I was incredibly delighted.

The Vortex shawl is also on the needles. I cast on my In A Daze handspun, and am slowly but surely making my way through this very beginner friendly pattern.

The Rules

I think any knit along, so there aren’t too many rules. To be included just enter a finished object picture into the FO thread in the Sew Perfect Purls Podcast Ravelry group. It’s that simple. Just enter your picture by October 1st and you will be entered into a random drawing giveaway for prizes.

To join in on all the fun, or to see what others are working on, just go to the Ravelry group and click on the Pi Shawl thread. I hope you join in!
