This is my latest accomplishment. It’s a wrap/shawl. It is designed by Joji Locatelli and her pattern is available on Ravelry. What is a mystery knit-a-long you ask? It’s a pattern that is released in stages and you don’t know the design. It’s a mystery. I think about 4,000 people signed up to knit this pretty shawl. A clue (part of the pattern) is released about once a week until the full pattern is done.
She is pregnant with Jack, our grandson, and is married to my oldest son, John. I had her pose with Poppy to demonstrate what a lovely shawl this is for a breastfeeding mother.
She is so beautiful!
Check out the pattern on Ravelry. Like I said, about 4,000+ people joined this knit-a-long from all over the globe. There are many different color combinations. You pick 5 colors you like, and you have your shawl.
This wrap is made from Madeline Tosh Merino Light, which is $20 something per skein of yarn. That’s about a $100 investment in a wrap. I was not ready to invest $100 in a wrap I had no idea what it looked like. I waited until the first 2 weeks were accomplished before I committed. Joji is a beloved designer with lots of well loved designs. Many people committed because it was a Joji design and knew it would be beautiful.
I’m getting ready to do another Knit-a-long by Andrea Mowry called “What the Fade”. Find her on Ravelry.
