This month I’ve been working on the WestKnits mystery knit-along on Raverly. WestKnits is the name that designer Stephen West uses. He designed the very popular Daybreak and Boneyard shawls, among many other great pieces. (Ravelry links to patterns, again.) So, I was quite excited to take part in this knit-along.
I used Berroco Comfort sock in Black and Dusk, and Berroco Comfort Bay in Grape Fizz. I made the smallest size, and did option 2 for the border. And, sadly, I am very underwhelmed by this project. It is clearly art deco/Frank Lloyd Wright inspired, and, sadly, not at all to my tastes.
Why the spoiler alert? Well, it was a mystery knit-along, and the final “clue” (e.g. last of the pattern) was only released on Monday. So, there just might be someone out there who reads my blog, is knitting this shawl, and isn’t finished yet. You never know!
