WIP: Finding My 3-Color Fade


Pattern: Find Your Fade
Fog,  Freyja, and Cotton Candy
Needle: US Size 3


I was recently in Oxford, UK for a conference and luckily stayed in an AirBnB right next to the Oxford Yarn Store. It was my first time presenting my work at a conference, so as a reward to myself I purchased some locally-dyed, super gorgeous yarn to attempt a 3-color Find Your Fade Shawl. 
(And when I wasn't at the yarn store or at the conference, I was exploring the sites around Oxford, including the scene of a Harry Potter movie :) . )



So many people have knit beautiful versions of the shawl, but a lot have expressed just how HUGE it is. There's a lot to be said for having a scarf that basically functions as a blanket, but for this time, I'm hoping to get a more easily-wearable shawl. 

My current plan is to just omit sections 5 and 6 of the pattern and do the first color melt at section 7. However I've also seen that some people have also reduced the number of lace repeats. I figured I'd get to the end of section 4 and actually sit down and do the math to make sure it comes out right. 


I've also decided the gif-ing my knitting progress is absolutely something I should always do.
