It’s about as fantastic a project I could ever knit, let alone on a year I really haven’t knit much at all.
I’ve kept it quiet, but I did the westknits mystery shawl this year, titled Slipstravaganza. I finished last weekend and managed to get the blocking done this week.
I used almost a full 4 balls of sockweight yarn for this. That’s as much knitting as any sweater.
The details were intricate.
I added a final blue stripe to the border beyond the 6 stripes written in the pattern. I wanted to have a little more blue making an appearance. I managed to finish the final blue row with just a yard of yarn left. It was a nail biter.
This is one of those knits that looks harder than it is. On the other hand, I did learn a lot of great techniques. I am so pleased to have knit this shawl! It was a delight and honestly, I’d do it all over again.
