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:
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.
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!
