The Shawl in Triplicate

As promised, here are the three shawls knit by members of our local knitting group for the Kauni KAL.
We only wish Shelley could have been there for the photo shoot with her shawl!!
(Kate, Rona and Brenda)

What is the most fascinating is that we each knit the shawl out of less than 150g of Kauni. Yet look at the size difference on them ... it's all about tension and gauge!!

This KAL was so much fun, with lots of great knitters.

Now we turn our attention to a sock KAL, starting on March 15th. The details are on Ravelry, at the Fun Knits group.

I don't think it's anything to do with gage or tension, it's the false weight of the yarn the yarn from the mfg and that throws off calc. Plus dye does a number on the weight of yarn depending on the color of the dye. I suspectearly in the batch of dye probably has is more caustic on the fibers than later batches, example notice the shade diffs of the 2 seemingly same colors, one is weaker.
