Jazz Reprise

I knit my first Shawl That Jazz a couple years ago, and it was both a really fun knit and a shawl I use fairly regularly. Win!

So, when I stumbled across two skeins of Blue Moon Twisted at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival back in May, I decided to jump back in again. (and I kind of enabled two friends along the way. Oops?)

Once again, the pattern knit up really quickly, and I like the finished shawl.

Thanks much to my friend Stephanie for putting a fresh eye behind my camera. And provided the mannequin. Yay! 

The Twisted is extremely squishy and makes a nice garter stitch fabric. Picking up the wraps to create the ruffle is the only mildly complex part of the process. All in all, I wouldn’t be surprised if yet another one of these winds up on my needles eventually!
