I unpinned Hypoteneuse last night and couldn’t believe how nice it was – what a difference blocking makes! But it was dark, so I had to wait until this morning when I forced my model to go outside and model it (can you tell how thrilled she was?)…
I can’t believe how nice it is – completely different than what it looked like unblocked. This is so light and airy. I really enjoyed the pattern as well – definitely an easy pattern, and would be great for a beginning lace knitter. This was my “don’t want to pay attention” or “I think I’ll have a martini” knitting project, so you know that it was easy to memorize and very easy to knit. The pattern called for 17 repeats, but I stopped at 13, and I’m so glad I did – it is just the right size, and any bigger would have been too much. Silky Wool is DK weight, so maybe if I had done this with laceweight or fingering, more repeats would have made sense.
I’m so happy to have another project out of the knitting basket. Now I just have a few more to focus on and finish….of course, I also may have started a new project instead!
Have a wonderful rest of the weekend!
