I got this shawl off the needles last week, but I decided that I will make at least one round of crochet across the top edge to strengthen it. If I was a little more experienced, I would have done something different along that edge from the beginning. Since this is my first attempt at a knit shawl I learned a few things. A friend gave me this pattern. I later saw her shawl that she had made with her homespun yarn and it was beautiful. Some day I hope to remake this pattern with a different edge and with a yarn that I have spun and dyed myself! Check out what others are working on at Judy's Patchwork Times.
|My socks are almost off the needle. I just need to do the kitchener stitch to finish the toe. I love making these socks. They work up quickly on a size 3 or 4 needle.|
