But the more I looked at it, the more I could see where I was unhappy when knitting it. The more tense I got, the more tension changes there were in my knitting (funny how that works). The project just kind of felt sad, and the knitting wasn't up to the standard I work to.
So, it's gone off to the frog pond. I still like the pattern, I still like the yarn, and I still like the combination together. So I'm going to start over with same and same, and make this something that I can be proud of. But if this poor thing were a cake, it would be inedible in it's current incarnation.
So shawl 2(3?) is now shawl 3(4?). Yep, I'm a little confused too.
Being a bad blogger, I've of course started something new and not shared. Hahaha! Ahem.
Another little gem from the Woolery, this is alpaca and silk. Yummy! Unlike the other shawls, I haven't so much been planning as knitting to feel the joy of knitting. I, of course, went with triangle. I'll have to shake things up with a rectangle soon.
Anyway, here's the current baby in its infancy:

And finally, guess what I found in smallest son's toybox?
Yep, 6 boxes of t-pins.
