Pattern: Mezquita Shawl by Roxanne Yuen
Yarn: Sweet Georgia CashSilk Lace in the Botanical colorway
Needles: Size 8 circs
I finally blocked the Mezquita Shawl yesterday - definitely one of the easiest blocking jobs I've recently had to do.
I really enjoyed this pattern - the short row shaping was super easy, and for whatever reason, short rows never bore me, even when they're in stockinette. This was also a nice use of skein of lace weight - I'll probably try some similar patterns I've found for some of the other single skeins I have hanging around from samplers past.
The CashSilk Lace is a lovely yarn to work with - I'd definitely buy more if I ran into another color I liked.
I also did another sock yarn sweater ornament, since I only have one other one so far. This time, I tried the cabled option, which was nice and easy (though I did manage to screw up one of the sleeves, but since those tend to hang on angles and looked skewed anyway, I'm not going to sweat it.)
