Omelet Shawl – Revealed!

Alright.

Since I teased you a bit with my post of two days ago, it’s finally time for the great reveal.

What, exactly, was I blocking?

It was, in fact, the Omelet Shawl, a beautiful design created by Joyce Fassbender.

I used Malabrigo Lace yarn and size 3 (3.25mm) needles.  I cast on June 10, 2012 and finished June 1, 2013.  It should not have taken me nearly a year, but as you know, teaching consumes my life from August to May.  Trying to complete my Reading Endorsement, Fred Jones, and other professional development series left me with very little time to knit.  The winding down of school (and the prospect of a knitalong with my friend, Christina) were the final motivation I needed to finish strong.

I hope you enjoy the rest of the pictures.  I took them myself…using the self-timer on my camera and my tripod.  It was a really fun photo session!

Pre-blocking. This is why we block…to open up the stitches to reveal the beautiful pattern!

 

Blocking was surprisingly easy!

I plan on wearing this to school on Wednesday…our final day!  I’ll pair it with a blue dress.  I think it will be divine!

  1. The shawl is lovely as is the pin holding it in place. I especially like the curved shape of this shawl: I’m not a fan of triangular ones. Great finish – have fun wearing it.
