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.
