It was 18 months of on-and-off work to get from fiber to yarn to shawl. I’d should probably be more focsed but I really don’t want to be.
My Pie Are Shawl is done and ready to be blocked. So its time to soak some knitting in a big tub of water, fend off curious cats, get the blocking wires out, and figure out just what this shawl looks like.
Two pounds of handspun alpaca went into this Pie Are Square shawl. No wonder it took me so long!
Jenn here, reporting to you from a place where the laws of physics don’t seem to apply. I’m knitting and knitting and getting no where on this shawl.
My knitting got too big and Mother’s Day came too fast. My Mother’s Day gift isn’t ready and that won’t surprise Mom at all. So here is my IOU, some pictures of the project in its current state, and true story about just how tough my mom really is. Happy Mother’s Day!
So after a few miles of garter stitch knitting, I’m working on the lace edge of this Pie Are Square shawl.
Progress is being made on my Pie Are Square shawl. I’m knitting fast, reading the pattern book, and loosing agreements with my cat. Typical.
My shawl has reached the stage where I have no progress to show. Progress has been made. But its hidden, scrunched up, and only I can see it. Its that special zone where in I am alone with the knitting.
