Knitting by cover of night

Wisp

Alas, the Clapotis. It has grown too large. I am debating whether or not to rip back and in the mean time have put the project on a time out. A careful, reasonable approach, I think. But it left me without a shawl to wear to the wedding of a friend. Could I go buy one? yes. Could I just not wear a shawl? of course. Are any of these acceptable propositions? no way. I knit, damn it, and I will wear something that I made.

I needed a project that was fast as I only had 2 weeks to wedding so I thought Wisp would be a good choice. But here’s the thing, I hate mohair. Hate it. It knots and sheds and makes me sneeze. Down with mohair! Clearly, mohair was out. I did have some lovely Silk Tweed from Garnstudio that I had bought without a purpose. About the correct yardage in a very nice orange – it’s a winner.

And here we go:
