I’ve been busier than I thought!

I know it’s been a long time since I last posted, so long in fact that I forgot my password. Fortunately, I did what all the ‘experts’ tell you not to do, I wrote it down.  Saved me the trouble of clicking – “Lost my password” or something to that effect.

Lo and behold, I found a bunch of drafts of posts.  I have no idea why I didn’t post them at the time, especially this one which is complete with photos.  So you will be seeing a series of posts from me in quick succession, mostly of stuff I kept in draft.  This post is from sometime in August! 

August 2012:  I was looking back at some of my posts and I saw pictures of works in progress.  I am very happy to say that they are both finished now!
You can see the partially completed projects on this post.

And here are the pictures of the completed items:
Cardioid:

Cardioid

Now the Cardioid came out a nice size.  I’m happy with it.   I’ve hung it on figurine and that’s deceptive because she’s smaller than I am (especially because she has no arms – very helpful for displaying shawls, wouldn’t want to live that way).  I’ve started a new one with larger needles and beads, I’m curious to see how it turns out.   NOTE (added January 2013):  I actually wore this on the cruise, at dinner.  More on that cruise later, in another post.

Haruni:

Haruni

This is a wonderful soft shawl because the yarn was so great. But it came out small, I have that problem with triangular shawls.  I tend to think that there is a lot of wasted knitted ‘fabric’ when you knit a triangular shawl.  You have this piece that goes down the back and takes away from where you really need the shawl, over your shoulders.  It will work well as a triangular scarf, especially here in New England, where sometimes it gets cold in the winter.  As I was blocking this, I noticed a dropped stitch -huh?  Must have done it while I was binding off.  That’s the second time that’s happened.  NOTE:  January 2013:  Yeah, and I still haven’t fixed that dropped stitch!

Below are links to my Ravelry pages on these two shawls:

    I totally agree with you about triangular shawls. I am still reading and re-reading my Faroe Island book to see if I can get one that is the right shape. Or maybe I’ll do a Ruana. Yours are beautiful and AMAZINGLY nicely blocked. (dropped stitch or not!).

      Thank you. I’m glad that I’m not alone regarding triangular shawls. I’ve really felt like an outsider since so many people design and make triangular shawls!

    Both of the shawls are beautiful! I can’t wait to make the Haruni…it’s on my list!
