Noro Kureyon Sock, colour S95 lime hot, one skein. Knit on US 3 needles. Sort of knit from the Cobweb Shawl pattern by Emma Crew (from MagKnits.com, which seems to be gone) and Elizabeth Zimmerman’s Pi Shawl. Except knit in garter stitch. And I did the knit-on edging out of my head.
I knit this without ripping. In the middle of wallowing through my cold, I decided to start the edging. Turned out I had enough. Then I thought there might be enough left for I-cord across the top. Turned out there was. I finished with about a colour and a half left. I haven’t measured, and I’m sure I won’t. Pure luck! And maybe sometimes knitting without a plan works. (I’m about to get smacked down.)
I wear it a lot. This little shawl attracts a lot of attention (the colours of course!). Knitting attention. And it catches people’s eyes. Walking into Ikea last weekend with my sister-in-law, she told me “todo el mundo esta mirando la capa.” And this is the place to brag a little!
