The Mystery is Over

Aurantium Blossom, the Socktopus Mystery Shawl, is finished and ready to be gifted.

Aurantium Blossom
Made using Posh Yarn Daisy in a colourway called Round Midnight
Aurantium Blossom
Knit on 5mm needles that were no where near long or pointy enough! I am so used to my addi lace needles now that knitting with anything else is hard.
Aurantium Blossom
I haven't blocked this too hard - just steamed it to make the pattern pop as I think it is plenty big enough.
Aurantium Blossom
Gorgeous pattern, I loved to see the leaves emerge on the last few rows. Thanks Alice!

It looks lovely Ruth. It's a great shape isn't it, perfect for draping around the shoulders.
