Happy binge watching and knitting! I know many of you have been wondering about those yarn overs on the edge of the shawl. They do look a little messy right now, however in this clue, you will pick up stitches into the yarn overs, which makes a nice row of eyelets where the border joins the body of the shawl. This combined with blocking, will even up any inconsistencies in the yarn overs!
The border begins with a few rows of garter stitch, followed by a simple lace section, and then a few more rows of garter. You will also continue increasing on the edges to maintain the elongated crescent shape.
For those of you who made a smaller or larger body, go ahead and pick up as many stitches as there are yarn overs. You need to have an even number of stitches, so you can easily decrease away a stitch with a k2tog after the yarn over on row 2. Also, in the final row of the clue, be sure that the stitch marker added in the middle of the row is centered based on your number of stitches at that point.
For those of you who are interested in beading, I do have some recommendations. Since this lace pattern is pretty much reversible, you can put the bead on the first stitch in the K2tog.
This will require approximately beads. At the end of this clue you will have what looks like a small shawlette. We still have 2 more clues to go, so it definitely won't be staying that small In this clue, we will finish the body of the shawl by decreasing in the same manner that we increased in clue 1.
It's more of the same, but don't worry, we will be changing things up a bit in the next clue! As you work the next sections, you will want to remove the stitch markers as you go, so they are not caught in the decreases. Sometimes this will require slipping the first couple stitches off the needle in order to remove the marker, however, if you remember, you can always remove it on the wrong side row before the decrease! Do any of you guys follow the MillaMia blog? They included last year's Outlander Shawl in their most recent post, so cool!
As I am sure you can tell by now, we are working the body of the shawl from side to side. Clue 2 is broken up into two sections, one of which will continue increasing, and the second begins decreasing. I have crocheted and knitted, and I can tell you crocheting is much easier, because you can rip out stitches and start up from where it makes sense.
And my washcloths are all worn out now. I love your poem.
One of my biggest problems in knitting is casting on. One of these days I am going to get it.

I love cats too, and I am always fascinated at their reaction what they do when they see a ball of yarn. Shalom aleichem, Pat G. I often make a mess of things, including knitting and other crafts.
Nicely done Clem. Perhaps you got the hang of both poetry and knitting for a short while at least. My mother tried to teach me; yep, I always preferred letting the cat play with the string, lol.
The Yarn Emporium unraveled as new business in Deming, New Mexico
Where to begin? I absolutely love your poem — so much layered meaning in it, the metaphor of the yarn and the collective knowledge of generations of women. Some knit or weave, some give it to the kittens to have fun with. Both are supremely valid ways to use up the wool imho. There are a thousand ways to unravel and kiss the yarn, no disrespect to Rumi. Thank you for lifting my day with your poem. This was awesome on so many levels. Got the history, got the feelings of joy then sadness.
Thanks so much for being inspired and posting for the WEP challenge. I am so not a poet, but I did knit as a kid. Even made a poncho. Liked your poem a lot with the inner meaning and repetition of the family and cat. I took lessons, but never got to finish them, therefore I never finished the project. Kittens always know what to do with the yarn.
Lovely poem! Cats sure know what to do with it. Make a mess. Or eat it, which ends badly.
