I know the shawl is crooked on my model, but once outside, I saw a large group of Witnesses walking straight toward me. I rushed to get the picture so I could take it indoors to safety. This neighborhood has a lot of people going door to door and it's so hard to get them to take, "I'm not interested" as a hint.May I interrupt your nonstop viewing of the
The Holden Shawlette project is done. Start to finish, this one took 12 days, though alone, the picot edging took several hours spread over two days. That is one trying and tedious cast off for so many stitches (309), but I'm really pleased with the outcome, and so is the recipient, Ms. Sara. I'd initially named it Sara's Dark and Stormy Shawl because, well, that's what the yarn color looked like in the hank. I've since renamed it Sara's Camo Shawl. The way the yarn played out once knit up was a total, but lovely surprise.
The shawl in dappled sunlight. I was actually now in the backyard because that was the only safe outdoor area to hide from the folks walking door to door.I have bookmarked so many shawls in the past two weeks, it's become ridiculous, so today, I'm casting on something completely different: Ruckle. I'm still deciding on the yarn, but I may use one I purchased at the fiber festival.
Alrighty then, that's all I have for news. I return you now to your regular broadcasting so you can see Mike Seidel of the Catastrophe Channel get his sandblasting facial. Right about now, I'd like to see a big wave deposit a giant shark right at his feet.
Now that would be something worth reporting.
I hope all of my east coast friends and relatives demonstrate more sense than reporters. Stay safe and dry my friends. Now would be a good time to stay put and cast on something lovely.
