My big summer project, under the watchful eyes of Ted and Marilyn, will be this, Sharon Miller's Wedding Ring Shawl.
No, I don't anticipate getting married. No, I don't know anybody who is getting married. No, I have no practical use for the item, once finished. Shut up.
Anyhow, I'm a good boy and I like swatching, so I swatched. When you purchase the (gorgeous) Wedding Ring Shawl pattern, Sharon sends along a card with samples of recommended yarns and little swatch chart, so you can try them out and see which you'd prefer to use.
Here we have Fiber A, a two-ply merino, worked on US size 1 needles.
And here we have Fiber B, DMC crochet cotton, worked on same.
I think I've decided to go with the merino.
Of course, maybe the cotton will look better after blocking.
