Massey Wrap

One of my weekend goals was to pick a lingering knitting project and set it free.  I chose my target and assessed the situation.  I looked at what had been knit and consulted the pattern.  There wasn't that much left to knit.  I could finish this up and maybe tackle another project before Monday rolled around.

I did finish but not with much weekend time left to spare.  I blame it all on a couple of time-consuming interruptions and a math mistake. Apparently my calculations were off, and a 24-row repeat didn't yield the number of inches I thought it did.  Never mind.  I didn't let a minor math error get in the way of forward progress.

Massey Wrap.

I'm thrilled with the results.

This design is worked on the bias and creates a cozy, cushy fabric. With lace on one side and textured ribbing on the other, this shawl can be worn on either side.  The I-cord edges are knit-as-you-go and make a nice finished edge.

Massey is a substantial shawl, but the pattern can easily be adapted to make it smaller.

The yarn is Dirty Water DyeWorks Lucia, colorway Lupine.

Ready to be packed away for fall travels.
