Pattern: Piper’s Journey by Paula Emons-Fuessle (my project: Piper’s Journey)
Yarn: Quince & Co. Chickadee
Colorway: Split Pea (130)
Needles: US 6 circulars (Knit Picks Nickel Plated)
Dates: June 1, 2012 to October 14, 2012
Skills: Basics and yarnovers (single & double), k2tog and skp.
Notes: This was a great knit! Don’t let my start and finish dates fool you, this shawl was a fairly quick knit (it really should have taken about a month or so). Gotta love miles of mindless garter followed by a simple applied/knitted on lace border. This is a must knit. It’s a fairly easy knit, even for a first time knitter – even with the lace borders. I highly recommend this knit. Knit it.
Note on the yarn – awesomesauce. Soft and squishy before blocking and amazing after blocking.
Buy it. Knit with it.
Blocking this was super easy – I used my new Inspinknity Premium Super Long Blocking Wires (67″). These things are the business. It took maybe 15 to 20 minutes to block this shawl out…maybe… Hello and what up to not having to pin out every point.
Buy them. Block with them.
