Ever since I was a little girl
I always wanted to be somebody.
Now I see I should have been more specific.~~Lily Tomlin
The Mystery Knitalong pattern is clear and easy to read if and only if you are a chart person. Boy, ain’t I a chart knitter! I prefer it. The charts were excellent although the repeats are easy enough to memorize quickly so I was never a slave to the chart. Even with lots of other concurrent knitting and a two-week break from the lace (2 clues behind), it is off the needles this morning after catching up on Clues 6, 7, and final 8 last night. The lace’s been dunked in water, rolled in towel, and now pinned to bed.
The Prism Lace Merino behaved well for a 2-ply cobweb. I used only half a skein (approx. 700 yards or 40 grams) for the project. The drape is divine. The lace is light yet substantial feeling even before blocking. LadyJane may just be my favorite 4-season wrap. I have never thought of myself as a shawl person. That will change! I can’t wait for the temps to rise so that I can strut around town wearing this.
It has been fun and extremely rewarding–truly a knitting delight (no pun intended.) Don’t forget to stop by Birgit’s shop here for more amazing, glorious shawl patterns. I even got a few design ideas following this shape. What more could I ask for in a project? Adventure is worthwhile in itself.
