Waaaaaaay back in June of 2015 I cast on for the Through The Loops Mystery Shawl. I always love Kirsten’s designs and I truly enjoy knitting lace so it seemed like a no brainer. And I enjoyed the hell out of knitting it. I didn’t do the greatest job keeping up with the weekly releases but I did knit steadily and I finally finished in . . . wait for it . . . September. And then it languished. It languished to the point where I sort of forgot.all.about.it. It languished to the point where it actually has a real name now, Liz Christy, and it isn’t just called a mystery shawl. Truly, it languished until this January when I decided I needed to take stock of the knitting I did in 2015 and I realized I never blocked this shawl. Last week on that unexpected afternoon off I finally gave the shawl a good soak and pinned it out on my blocking mats.
And it’s big. Bigger than I thought it might be so my blocking was not severe at all.
And it’s beautiful. I went with one color because I’m kind of over the two color shawl thing at the moment. I don’t regret this decision at all.
This yarn is gorgeous and it is Woolen Rabbit Airy. The color is Through the Looking Glass. I love it so much I have bought it from Kim twice now. And not on purpose either. I’m sharp like that.
Now that it’s blocked I can’t wait to wear it all wrapped around my neck, keeping me cozy and all. I just wonder why I waited so long.
