Sunshine Yellow Shawl
Finally, finally I am posting about this shawl. I must say that I'm in love with it and it was worth the crazy stitch patterns. I confess I wasn't a fan of the first stitch pattern because it was unreadable. I find I dislike writing down which row I'm on so I don't do it, and my locking stitch marker system didn't help so it was guess work on my part. I think I guessed correctly.
I will wear the shawl like the above photo. Oh so cozy warm and so so soft :)
The pattern is Laminaria, the yarn is Manos Lace and my project page is here. Modifications were six repeats of the star pattern and a full eight repeats of the blossom chart. I squeaked by with enough yarn....barely-eliminating the last purl row before bind off.
Oh and the knitting surgery went well. It was a dropped stitch and I fixed it as best as I could. Only I know where it is and I have a difficult time finding it. It saddens me that it exists but well....we can't all be perfect all the time, right?
Also I wanted to add that a sweet friend of mine on Ravelry has posted a shawl pattern of her own design, the proceeds up through the end of October are going to a very worthy cause. If you're interested pop over to Melissa's blog and maybe purchase this lovely pattern.
