|Almost ready for the edge section!|
In case you were wondering or confused, the pattern only calls for 4 body section repeats, I am making my shawl a bit larger and have decided to do 6. I bought 2 extra skeins of the Fibre Company Terra (in the Mint colorway) just to be safe. I am pretty tall and I wanted a larger size that was more shawl-like. After looking at the Ravelry page for the Bandit, I saw that many folks had successfully added extra sections for a larger shawl and decided that I would do the same!
Also, another of our little beans, Sharon, is knitting a gorgeous Springtime Bandit in Malabrigo Twist. This is actually her 2nd Bandit. She knit one earlier this spring in Berroco Remix. Here she is modeling that version. Isn't it gorgeous! I'm so glad she decided to join in on the KAL!

Courtney mentioned that she is participating in the KAL too. She’s knitting her Bandit in a new Terra colorway called “Belladonna.” I can’t wait to see it. I only wish I had remembered to get a photo of us to post here. I was pretty tired by that point too. Oh well. :) Don’t forget to check out the Ravelry thread for the KAL and to see others’ progress!
I hope you all are well and I’ll see you next week! I can’t wait to see more FO’s!
