Okay. I give up. We’ll likely have a frost the next night or two, so clearly it’s nearly past time to blog my “summer cotton shawl”. I was waiting to block it, but I’m also already a couple of FO reports behind…
For those of you who aren’t lace knitters, the fact that it’s cotton means there will be no drastic changes. Cotton doesn’t lend itself to the wonders of blocking… honestly, I sometimes use a steam iron to “block” cotton projects.
Anyway, I present Quake-icane… thus named because it was a work in progress for an earthquake, lots of aftershocks and a hurricane!
It’s a nice, quick, easy pattern. Per the pattern’s suggestion, I used Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off.
Yarn: Cascade’s Ultra Pima. Wow. Soft stuff. Didn’t make my hands hurt, and hasn’t gotten fuzzy either… not that it would get too fuzzy being moved from one spot to another on the back of the loveseat. Hem.
Needles: US #7 circulars, Addi Clicks.
Verdict: Some of the ladies have made multiples of this shawl. If I was a fan of weighty, cotton wraps, I could see that happening.
Anything fun on your weekend agenda? Celebration week begins for me tomorrow, with gMarie‘s birthday… but I’ll share more about all the other celebrations later!
