Finally, a Finished Something!

I started to a Mara, a pretty straightforward shawl, a few weeks ago. I thought there was going to be pleating on the edging. It's not. It's basically ribbing, which while looking cool, wasn't what I had wanted.

I grabbed my copy of Folk Shawls. I've had my eye on Wool Peddler's shawl since I got the book.

I only had to do another 4 rows and I'd be at the correct number of stitches to make it! So...

Wool Peddler's Shawl.
Pretty.

Jenn inspired me to start a Central Park Hoodie. I realized at some point that I wouldn't be pregnant forever (although it feels like that most days) and that I'd be able to fit in normal sized clothes by the winter (hopefully).

It's going quickly. I started it Thursday night, and I'm almost done with the back! I'm using my favorite- Schaefer Yarns Miss Priss in the Georgia O'Keefe colorway. I had some pooling, so I decided to tie on another ball and work 2 rows ball 1, 2 rows ball 2 for the rest. So far, no pooling and it's coming along nicely.

I've had that shawl on my list forever. I've even got the yarn all spun to knit it. Hmmm. Perhaps it's time to start.
