Because I can't keep my needles empty of Estonian lace for even an hour, right after I cast off Triinu, I cast on for another shawl. Friends, this has become a truly epic endeavor: I'm going to knit every shawl in Knitted Lace of Estonia. There's fourteen patterns, and I've knit six of them. Of those six, I've knit a few twice, and Miralda four times. I also have a few languishing in my UFO basket.
This one in particular is a little spicier than the others. Lilac Leaf is probably the simplest of the nuppy shawls, with only an edging of nupps and a plain lace-patterned body. Leaf and Nupp, on the other hand, laughs in the face of simplicity.
If you'll excuse me for a moment, the shawl would like to share a freestyle poem.
HOW I ROLL
LEAF AND NUPP
I WILL TAKE YOU DOWN
AND YOUR MINI CROCHET HOOK TOO
PURL ROWS ARE FOR SUCKERS
DEAL WITH IT
VARYING STITCH COUNTS?
I EAT THEM FOR BREAKFAST
OH, YOU WANTED TO CAST ON JUST THE ONE TIME?
HAH! HAH! HAH!
I'M GONNA GO HANG OUT WITH YOUR MOM
BECAUSE YOUR WAFFLE IRON KNITS BETTER
THAN YOUR DUMB ASS
annnnnd I'm out.
