The May 2012 club shipment from BMFA was a gorgeous variegate skein with most (if not all) of my favorite colors. Yay! I chose to do the not-a-sock pattern:
Pattern: Breaking Waves
Designer: Carson Demers
Available: sometime after May 2013
Yarn: BMFA Socks That Rock Lightweight in Wavelength (May 2012 Club Colorway)
This pattern began at the neck with stockinette …. that was gathered into three-dimensional waves every so often. It was a cool technique! After a few repeats of that, it transmuted into some fairly standard lace. I heard rumors that many knitters threw in an extra lace repeat without running short, but I chose to knit as-written — I like a small scarf-size shawl, and I wanted to save some yarn for hexipuffs.
