I finished my Treat
shawl and got it blocked over the weekend. This is a completely reversible shawl. I knit it in Dream in Color’s Jilly in the Wineberry color way. I used two skeins so my Treat is bigger than the one in the pattern. (I used just over 700 yards for mine, and worked 25 repeats.) This was a great project, and I’m kind of sad that’s it’s over. I would definitely knit another one or two!
Here’s a close up and you can see the texture of the rib and the lace. One of the nice things about this pattern is that it’s easy to memorize, so once you get a feel for what’s going on, you don’t really need the chart and you can just knit it.
Oh, and the trick? Well, this morning after my run, when I was doing my cool down I saw this rather large lady sitting in the middle of her web. She was doing some sort of spidery business, but when I stuck my iPhone up close, she sat still and smiled for the picture. I’m assuming she’s a she, since female spiders are bigger than the males. If she’s a he, I don’t want to see how big the female would be!
