WIP Wednesday: straight to completion

Oops. Forgot to post this WIP (work in progress) and now it's a FO (finished object). I made a mini shawl from a pattern called Citron. Here's the starter picture, from Sept 26

It's crazy - you cast on three measly little stitches, then somehow magically get make it grow and grow and grow. And I finished it last night:

The ruffled effect is created by knitting a band of x number of stitches (say, 100), then creating double the number of stitches for a while (200 stitches), then decreasing back to the original number (100).

It's quite a nice effect, though I don't know if I'll actually use the thing. This is the problem with knitting - I enjoy the process, but can't use much of the finished works.


  1. You finished! That was fast. I love using my small triangular shawl as a more decorative scarf.
