Here we have an unblocked shawl:
And here it is blocked.
Unblocked, it measures 52″ along the top and 26″ down the center back. Blocked it is 70″ along the top and 30″ down the center back. It took a little under 600 yards of fingering weight wool, specifically Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light in the Oceana colorway.
I’m calling it “Island Time Shawl.”
Pattern coming soon.
It has not escaped my notice that I have designed and knit 3 lace shawls in under 3 weeks. (And I have 2 more designs charted out waiting to be knit.) What’s up with that?
I really have no explanation except that I appear to be having a creative spurt. I am full of the spurty creativity, as Buffy and the Scooby Gang might say.
This happens from time to time. I’m not sure why or what triggers it. I just enjoy it while it lasts.
The next shawl is already on the needles but will take a little longer because I’ve got some required stealth knitting that I am working on at the same time.
Film at 11.
Happy Blogiversary to Me
Tomorrow (April 1) is my 9th blogiversary. Yes, I have been blathering on here at WendyKnits since April 1, 2002. In celebration, I am having a pattern sale in my Ravelry store. From now through the end of April 2011 all patterns in the store are 25% off (with the exception of the Japanese Garden Shawl). The discount is applied automatically when you put a pattern in your cart.
Just my way of saying thanks for reading my blog and knitting my stuff.
Speaking of the Japanese Garden Shawl, donations now total $4117.75.
