Other Unfinished Business

I decided that the Scrap Shawl was big enough.



Well, OK, I got tired of those ever increasing rows of either plain knit or plain purl. But it is big enough if not any too big. So I switched to knitting on a simple edging, much more interesting to work and it looks cute if I say so myself.

Here's a close up - though the real color is a very dark grey twist.




I haven't decided what to do about the top edge, but it needs something, because it is ugly. I carried the yarn(s) along between color changes, and didn't do a very neat job of it, either. I've never actually worked an applied I-Cord. Maybe that will be the first thing to try.

I am extraordinarily fond of that shawl. It looks like it would be so cozy to wrap up in come next November and December (and January and February and March and probably April). Did you post about your pattern/method?

I like it a lot. I'll bet it's the one you reach for next winter.

My authentication word is "demory". I think that's the process of "CRS".

It is looking good - I like the blend of colours. Spookily enough, I started a scrappy shawl only two days ago. Great minds......
