This year, I am 3/3 for finishing sock-club projects for the Blue Moon Fiber Arts Notorious Sock Knitters club! This is the not-sock pattern from March:
Pattern: Breaking Waves
Designer: Carson Demers
Available: sometime after March 2013
Yarn: Socks That Rock Lightweight in “Wavelength”
I am always interested to see how variegated yarn knits up. Check out this comparison of the skeined yarn …
…with the full shawlette:
This pattern used an interesting technique to warp and ruffle the top part of the shawl. The ripples are achieved by working stockinette stitch for a spell, then on a “pickup” row you knit the stitch on the needle together with a stitch from a previous row. Very cool textural and 3-D effect!
Although many club members chose to knit an additional repeat of the feather-and-fan bottom edging, I decided to knit the pattern as written — I like this compact scarf/shawlette size.
