What should I do?

Last week before we went on the road trip to New South Wales I started on the Sea Level shawl using my handspun, the long trip allowed me to get a lot of the knitting done but then there was a snag - I run out of yarn! The shawl is about 2/3 complete but there's only about 20 meters or so left, so I'm stuck, arrrrrgh!
Also I'm not sure if the yarn is suited for the pattern, so now I'm in two minds whether to frog... consider this is a spin/knit along project, any additional yarn will have to be handspun too, and I'm not sure where to go from here in terms of colour, hmm...  Any suggestions? or should I start again with another handspun and use this for something else?

Our trip to Toowoon Bay was fantastic, nothing fancy, just some relaxation and quality family time together. We also visited some friends whom we haven't seen for a long time which was a bonus.

View from our friend's balcony, I wouldn't mind retiring to a place like this!
Pelicans at The Entrance, they congregate everyday at 3pm near the waterfront for a feed, these are the early birds ;)

Thanks for dropping by, there is more fibre arts fun at Wisdom Begins in Wonder. Indulge your creative side and join the party!


  1. I think that yarn looks GREAT with that pattern. The colours are fantastic so far. If I had to continue on with that project, I would just spin some more yarn to finish it up - and since you asked, I would continue on with a bit more green if you have any more. It's just too lovely to frog! Good luck.

  2. I concur with Natalie, continue on and green would be my choice of color. I think it is lovely.

  3. I think that's beautiful yarn, and it seems perfectly suited to that pattern! I don't think you'd go wrong with either more green or more blue (since you already have a couple blue colors in the shawl, higher up).

  4. The shawl is beautiful! So I agree with everyone, definitely spin up more yarn to finish it.

  5. How lovely to have 'friends in high places'!! (Sorry...but your early bird pun inspired me!!) :)
    The stripy shawl fragment is beautiful and would go with absolutely everything...
    finishing it would be my choice too!

  6. I think the shawl is beautiful....so I'd just continue with it....it's nice to have friends in beautiful places to visit
