Joji Mystery Knit-a-Long

Lauren, my daughter-in-law

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!

Thank you Rodan & Fields Lash Boost for pretty long lashes.

 

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.
