Auburn wave is all blocked! I grabbed a couple of quick selfies while I was out back with the boys this afternoon.
This was a really easy pattern - great TV knitting. And it's one of those patterns that proves that knitting doesn't have to be complicated to be lovely.
I used about two and a half balls of Crystal Palace Mini Mochi. The colourway is Ice Wine. I have a love hate relationship with Mini Mochi. I love the colour combos and the long colour runs. But the spinning isn't the best - the yarns has a tendency to drift apart easily. I didn't find any in these balls, but previous ones I've had were full of knots, throwing off the colour sequence. It's a nice yarn for shawls - very soft - but I wouldn't want to use it for anything that gets more wear. Even though it has nylon in it, it just doesn't seem that strong. Not to mention, singly plys that aren't tightly spun pill easily.
It worked out well for this project. And to answer a question from a few posts ago - yep - this is the shape the ends up in - no manipulation necessary. I didn't even really need to block it, but it opened up the lace a little more.
