blocking is magic, part two
Pattern: Cassis Shawlette (a freebie! link to my Ravelry project page)
Yarn: Candy Skein Yummy Fingering (colorway: grape soda, used approx. 3/4 of the skein)
Needles: Size 4 Knit Picks Harmony
Mods: None! This was super fast and fun to knit! You knit the lace chevron edging first, and then pick up and knit short rows to fill in the crescent shape of the shawlette. So far this is one of my favorite shawlette construction methods--the short rows really zip along! And it's garter stitch, so it makes for really relaxing knitting. I would knit this pattern again in a heartbeat! This marks my first 350 yards toward my 5k Stash Dash challenge this summer--guess I'd better get knitting, huh?
