Summer Mystery Shawlette

It is after 9 pm and over 80 degrees still. I hardly need a wool shawlette. When I took this grainy photo, the thermometer there behind me was reading about 94. Whew. Hopefully this fall and winter I'll get a chance to wear this. I love how it turned out.

I had such a FUN time with this project. Wendy's pattern - Summer Mystery Shawlette - besides being a JOY to knit, is a lovely design and reminds me of tulips. I expect I'll knit another sometime and I think I'll cast on the extra stitches next time and go for the larger size now that I know how lovely it is.

I used less than two skeins of Louet Gems Fingering in the discontinued color, Caribbean Blue and my size 6 KnitPicks Options needles.

Wendy, in the meantime, has already designed and finished a large circular Pi shawl. Goodness, she's fast! Her latest book, "Wendy Knits Lace" comes out in August and has 20 patterns.

Hi, I found your blog after knitting Wendy's shawlette too. Yours turned out beautifully - I love your choice of color. Mine is also finished but I still need photos.

BTW, I live near Eagles Landing. We are almost neighbors (vbg)

Your shawl's beauty is only surpassed by the perfect color. I may have to try the pattern, as long as there are no dreaded nupps lurking in it.

Beautiful, beautiful! I need to get mine off the blocking wires and do some pictures. Been sick with a cold so no "outside pictures" for me, the heat would do me in for sure, uh! Maybe tomorrow. Was a fun knit, and def need to make another, larger. Thanks for pointing me in that direction!
