Wednesdays Are For Knitting: Romi’s Mystery Shawl 2015

For the better part of April and more than half of May I have been working on Romi’s Mystery Shawl 2015. Each Friday when the clues came out I was ready to go, even when I was on vacation in Mexico. The thing about a mystery shawl, though, is that it’s a, well, mystery. Let me just say right now – Romi hasn’t let me down yet.

I love this thing.

I love it’s size. It’s BIG. That’s the love seat on our deck and it spreads across almost the entire back.

mystery shawl 3 for carole knits
I love it’s lace pattern. All of those yarn overs and transitions from one section to another – they are just gorgeous to me.

I love it’s pointy edges. I know some people didn’t pull out all of the points like I did but I like it this way.

mystery shawl 5 for carole knits
I love it’s edging. Sure, those yarn overs were a pain in the ass to count, but they were totally worth it. And those big leaves – stunners.

mystery shawl 6 for carole knits
I love it’s crazy crown stitches. That was a new one on me and it was confusing at first but I got the hang of it and I love the little scallop they make.

mystery shawl 7 for carole knits
I love the yarn I chose for this project. It’s Kim’s Lucent and it’s incredibly soft and the colors are just lovely. Boney Maroney and Birch Beer if you’re looking to do some shopping.

I gave away the last big shawl I knit. Not this one, though. This one is mine, all mine.

    I love the colors you choose, Carole! Just gorgeous! (I gave mine away this time. . . because my Mom loved it so.)

    I love the colors you chose and I love how it came out. It makes me want to sit with Jo-Ann and get mine finished too.

    Beautiful!!

    It’s gorgeous, Carole! It looks like those colors will be wonderful with just about anything. I can’t wait to block mine… sometime.

    wow, that’s really stunning. I haven’t wanted to knit a shawl in a long while… it seems that recently they’ve all started to look the same to me: garter stitch and short rows. But this one is really special, and you knit it beautifully. I love the “crazy clown stitches,” they are really unique. I have Claudia’s finished shawl open in the next tab over, and it’s also really beautiful.
