My current work in progress:

1. Strandwanderer, designed by Lea Viktoria, knit from Wollmeise Merino "Pure" in the "Zenzi" colorway on a 3.25 mm (U.S. size 3) needle.
2. Myriad stealth projects.

As I mentioned before, for me, knitting up a lace pattern on the fly can be a hit or miss proposition. I know what I want it to look like when it is done and blocked, but I don’t know if reality is going to match what I visualize in my fevered brain.

Here’s my shawlette pre-blocking:

It is 48″ across the top edge and 21″ down the center back.

And here it is after blocking:

(If you click on the photo you can see a larger size that shows the detail quite nicely.)

After blocking it is 66″ across the top edge and 30″ down the center back.

And I’m happy with it — it looks the way I envisioned it. icon smile Success

The pattern will be available — eventually. You might have noticed that I’ve not written up patterns for my past few projects. I’ve got a lot of “stuff” on my plate and simply don’t have right now to release any new patterns. But I appreciate very much that so many of you ask and want to knit my stuff! In time, you can!

You may note that there was no small fluffy kitty reclining on it in either photo. Small fluffy kitty is here:
