Um, so you know I was having difficulty in a previous post deciding what to knit out of my two works in progress?
Well, I'm not quite sure what happened, but somehow a third item seems to have cast itself on *laughs*
So, here is my first shawl... I've wanted to make a shawl for a while, and I keep putting it off because I'm just not patient enough for lace quite yet. But I thought that it would be helpful to learn a bit about shawl construction before I jump into some of the more intricate designs, so I cast on La La's Simple Shawl.
And yes, I know I could have waited until after I've finished at least one of my other projects, but I didn't ;) This was partly inspired by the ferocity of the air conditioning in my office... I thought it would be nice to have a shawl draped over the back of my chair, available to keep my shoulders warm at a moment's notice. Besides, the scarf can wait, it's 20 degrees out there at the minute and I don't think I'll need a scarf for a little while.
Yeah, I know, I sound very much like I am justifying it. Essentially, I wanted to start something new, so I did *grins*
It really is a very simple shawl, I like the way it looks but it's pretty much rows of stocking stitch, garter stitch and a ridiculously simple lace row.
I think it'll be pretty good :)
