I knit it using the Mizzle pattern (free on Ravelry) by Patricia Clift Martin. I used Hazel Knits Sock Yarn. It was a very fast, simple knit (when one reads and follows the directions), and after blocking it came out so beautifully!
I didn't take a bunch of pictures of the process, but here's a few of the knitting progression (and regression):
one hour in:
three hours in, one hour out.
(turns out that some of the eyelets are purely DECORATIVE, meaning that I had increased by double about 9 rows too soon. OOPS! Yes, reading the pattern is a fantastic idea. I recommend it.)
Center section done. Starting the edging:
I thought I had a picture of the "pre-blocked" finished shawl, but I don't. So I'll show you the blocking process (for those that don't know what blocking is).
First, you gently wash your knitted item in warm (or cold) water with a touch of wool soap. Mmmm... the small of wet wool is delightfully GROSS! Think of the smell of a wet sheep (or dog). Blechh. Maybe that's why I don't like blocking?!?! ;)
Then you make a knitting towel wrap - and roll out the excess water. You should never wring knitting. A towel larger than the one I'm using is better. I was being lazy.
Then on blocking squares, or a nice bedspread, or ??? you pin your knitting to the shape you want it to have, and let it dry. Sometimes it takes a few hours, sometimes DAYS. Do not try and rush the drying process.
Sometimes you have to re-pin and re-pin and re-pin until you get the shape JUST right. This took me an hour to get perfect.
This was "pre-perfection", but the best shot of the finished shawl.
Now I just need a picture of Wendi wearing it! :)
