Right before my trip to A Good Yarn in Sarasota, FL, I decided to pack up a new knitting project (of course).  I decided on Crashing Waves because I knew I needed a new one for my trunk show, its portable and I’ve memorized the pattern.  So I picked out this really neat white yarn from my stash that I bought in Athens, Greece when I went there a few years ago.  It is a 100% mercerized cotton with a Greek name that I can neither spell nor pronounce.

So I started knitting merrily along and decided that I wanted to knit a Crashing Waves with a huge lace portion, like I have done in the past by just modifying the depth of the pattern in either the body or the lace section.  So I got started on the lace and since this was my umpteenth Crashing Waves, about 6 rows into the lace I decided I didn’t want to knit this shawl any more.  I just wanted to be done with it.  Yes, that is how many Crashing Waves I have knit- I have memorized that pattern and I’m a little sick of it.  I’m sure you have all had that feeling – “I DO NOT want to kit this any more!” But I have to say- it’s still a great pattern, especially the first 8-10 times. Haha :)

I decided to cut this Crashing Waves short and end early, I finished off the lace repeat and worked the special short-row bind off.  And this is what I have to show for my work.  I actually really really like it and I don’t think it would look so sweet if it weren’t as small.  I’m pretty happy with the way this little project came out… I might even keep it for myself.
