This was a cool knit along to be a part of. The pattern was really a recipe so everyone has a different shawl at the end. This is how mine turned out.
Rumpus Recipe Shawl in Family Pendragon Mystic MCN Sport, Eden and Family Pendragon Superwash Merino/Silk, Violet (trim for Miss Giraffe). Modeled by my darling Dancing Queen who, upon hearing my input for her poses, informed me, “Mama, I have modeled for you before” in and oh, so teenager tone.
She’s right. She has. And she is a natural. Until she gets goofy.
But, back to the shawl. To get the idea of scale, here it is on me.
Three things about this knit.
1. I love knit alongs! I love the chit chat, the exchange of ideas, the friendly incentive to keep going (and to finish). I love to see how one pattern can turn out so different when knit by different people and with different yarns. This one was especially fun because of the mix and match nature of the pattern, and because the people in this Ravelry group are so fun.
2. I love Family Pendragon! Every yarn, every fiber, it is all perfectly lovely. I love the colors and the textures. They do not disappoint. Check it out!
3. I love the way the layered ruffles look! I did not, however, love how long it took to knit them. Don’t even get me started on the binding off. Whew! The last row and bind off of the last ruffle took me an hour! But it was good movie knitting. And I love the end result!
Anything else that I have to say about this knit (and there was quite a bit) I said on my Ravelry project page here.
And with that, Christmas knitting is officially begun. Wanna guess who this is for?
