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.
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.
