The knitting mojo is back!

After a couple of disappointing results on knitting projects, it was very nice to have a project come out right.


That's Springtime Bandit in Cascade 220 Heathers (#2433 Pacific Heather).

(Modeled by a volunteer at Knit Night.)

I worked one extra repeat in the center section. Without that repeat, I'd have completed the shawl in two balls of yarn; with the extra repeat, I needed a little bit of the third ball.


The final measured 58" x 31". This will be a lovely pattern to use for a shawl going as a gift to someone not skilled in blocking. Just soak the shawl, then lay it out flat to dry. No points to pin out, or other awkward bits. It pretty much blocks itself.


(Knitting mojo's back. But photography mojo? Not so much. The color is a much richer, darker teal.)
