I started a new shawl on Monday, it's Lynne Sibley's Sailor Blues Shawl. I've already mentioned how much I love Lynne as a crocheter - she comes up with the most ingenious designs! I had a 6 hour round train trip to Moe on Monday, so I picked this out as a new commuter project. I'll tell you, it's really slow going. You can see by my extremely terrible picture it works up to a fairly dense fabric, and with the 2ply its going to be a long process. So far I've worked 21cm. I'm finding the black yarn makes it a bit difficult to see the end stitches, and I can't really tell where I'm up to (despite only a 4 row repeat), so I'm going to get out a bunch of stitch markers to try to keep track.
I'm going to work this in the black yarn left over from Dahlia III and then add purple stripes with some random 2ply remnants I got for $2 from the bwm bargain room.
|I have no idea how I am going to show you the stitch pattern. It really is quite nice, trust me. Also, why is my shawl looking humpy? I'm going to rely on blocking to fix that.|
|I too would like to go naked if I had a body like that (via)|
