undulate

Standard

So, I got this random message on Etsy.

She’s from Washington, loves my stuff, la la la, would I knit her a shawl with this yarn she’s had for ages?

I generally don’t knit with other people’s yarn as my motto is “Life is too short to knit with shitty yarn.”

Why everyone thinks the $2 balls of yarn from Michael’s is anything but disaster is beyond me.

Anyhow, I was half right.  The yarn was a really interesting, quality blend of cotton and rayon from Blue Heron, but not so fun with which to knit lace.

It was really nubbly and getting a stitch pattern to show up at all, let alone look fabulous, was a sisyphean task.

She originally wanted me to knit my Triple Crown Shawl for her, but I convinced her that I could come up with something that would suit the yarn better.

I think I’m going to call it Undulate as the stitch has more to do with movement than form.

The pictures are of less than high quality, but Husband’s iPhone was all that was available at the time.  It did the job.

The pattern will be made available as soon as I knit it out of some fingering weight yarn.

About Angela

My name is Angela. I am a 28 year old psych and criminology graduate, but I'd rather not diagnose you. I am a cuddle-slut. I can recite the entire script of The Princess Bride, (including accents) and believe that the meaning of life is contained within. Polyanna, Snap.com commercials, and Oprah 'reunion shows' make me cry. I can whistle and hum at the same time, but I cannot touch my toes. I am an expert in both listening and talking. I look good in orange. I am a writer. I kick ass in Gin, Hearts, and Cribbage but I don't understand Canasta or Bridge. I can be heard singing Broadway numbers from my shower, and have dressed up as a viking princess, (complete with aluminum foil breast plate) The Phantom of the Opera, and a Ghostbuster for Hallowe'en. I have a bird named Bean. I have a brother named Adam. They are not related. I like vanilla body lotion, peanut butter, saunas, Jim Carrey, broccoli, pets, TheOnion.com, Muppets, Kevin Smith, Corelle dishes, dry erase white-boards, Barenaked Ladies, Philosophy, the letter J, Harry Potter, picture frames, swimming, quilting, Michael Moore, genealogy, Raggedy Anne, tacky 50's tchotchke, 'Idiot's Complete Guide To' books, tweezers, feather pillows, polar dips, aquariums, Martin Luther King Jr., and Dr. Pepper. I don't like meat, gossips, cooked carrots, American Idol, mosquitoes, sweating, politics, public washrooms, tardiness, tuition, hunting, pat answers, pick up lines, brown bananas, cliches, pine scented air freshener, Kevin Costner, bacon, candied apples, pro-wrestling, humidity, and hypocrisy. Books I've read recently The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Dark Tower, When Nietzsche Wept, What's So Amazing About Grace?, Catcher in the Rye, Not Wanted On the Voyage, The Red Tent, The Little Prince, The Way the Crow Flies, Slaughterhouse-Five, The Poisonwood Bible, The Fall, The Knot of Vipers, Calculating God, The Chrysalids, Sick Puppy, Nineteen Eighty-Four, Franny and Zooey, The Brothers Karamazov, and jPod. I am slightly neurotic. No I'm not. Yes I am.
