I was so flattered and excited when everyone's craftster crush, wendiek, asked me to swap with her in the latest IYP!

I wanted to make her something knitted since it's not a craft she does. With the help of some of the mods, I selected a pattern called Braidsmaid by Martina Behm. It was a really fun knit - just the right balance of ease and interest.



The yarn I used a silk blend yarn from Manos del Uruguay. It was a delight to work with!! It has a soft and shiny texture but still feels cozy and warm.



I added extra pattern repeats to make the shawl bigger so that it could easily be worn just draped on the shoulders or all wrapped up around the neck.



It was a fun knit and I think wendiek liked it (that's what really matters Cheesy Smiley)!

Thank you!

It looks great on you, wendiek!! Smiley Smiley I'm so happy you like it.

bananaleg - I love the yarn too. I will definitely use it again. I did have one skein that had a ton of knots in it but I think it was a lemon. The rest of the skeins were great.
