Slowly but surely…

May 2, 2008

My shawl work is crawling along…

Here’s where I’m at….

The pattern calls for 16 repeats of two charts, but this is for a child instead of an adult… so I thought I’d go with 8 repeats.  Then after bouncing that idea of the shawl queen Grace, I was going to do 6 repeats… well… this morning with 5 complete, I measured it on the big girl.. and I am going to stay right here at 5.  The picture of course is in it’s unblocked state and looks like  it will be a circle instead of a rectangle.. but we pulled it out this morning and stretched her long.. and she will definitely be a rectangle… a really wide one for a little girl (oh the lessons learned on my first true lace project)…  but the big girl really loves it and can’t wait to see it all pinned out tonight! 🙂

Thank you so much Grace for being an ear and listening! 😉

Now.. back to my knitting and prepping my house for 7 visitors this evening! EEEGADS!

    Well you know I am partial to hearts so I love this pattern. I may just have to ask you more about it when your life calms down again. Will that ever happen?

    I can see your smiles already for your Big Girl.
