Knitting ~ Azzu's Shawl

Last month I joined a couple of my knitting bloggy friends (Home of OHM & The Knit Wit by Shair) for a Knit along. We decided to make a shawl and gathered up a bunch of patterns we liked and voted on our favorites. The winner... Azzu's Shawl, you can pick up this pattern for free on Ravelry (membership required but it is also free).

This shawl pattern is pretty simple once you get the hang of Yarn overs that go from a knit to a purl. Both Christy and I had some trouble getting over this hump but once we did we all ended up with a beautiful new shawl to add to our wardrobe.

This shawl or I guess some may say shawlette can be worn a couple different ways and will be great for the summer when you want a quick cover from the sun or on a cooler evening. I am not sure which way I like it best yet but here are a couple pictures.


This was also the first time I blocked a knitted project. It really did help the wool relax which stopped the curling, made it stretch bigger and bring out the lace pattern. I think I pinned it wonky but I still love it!
I have a couple more project on the go and can't wait to share them with you. One is a gift for the kids teachers.
