Secret Of Change

The other day I finished a lingering knitting project.  

Secret of Change.

This was my mindless project - the one I worked on when I needed to knit but couldn't give it my full attention.  So I worked on it sporadically, and it lingered.

It was worth the wait.

Secret is an asymmetrical shawl.  It's substantial yet surprisingly light and airy.

The design is all garter stitch - comforting, dependable garter stitch.

Short rows combined with yarn overs create the eyelets - very clever. The yarn is Dirty Water DyeWorks Lucia, colorway Pixie.  This Superwash Merino / Nylon blend is a workhorse yarn for socks, but it has elegant drape with this shawl.

Now I'm on the prowl.

I need another mindless knitting project.
