Clever title... really has nothing to do with the post. Well, "shawl" does but that's about it. I'm coming along thank you very much Mr Gandalf.
Firstly, I hope all y'all are enjoying the Math for Knitters. Please share with friends etc. who might be having issues with knitting/fibre arts that my math might help with ;)
I am working on a shawl for my mom for her birthday. It's the Trinity Shawlette. I think it will be very nice when it's done! I'm doing version 1 because I was thinking of version 3 but then I forgot. I think I have one or two repeats to go. It will probably be too big if I use all my yarn (~600yds of Misti Alpaca Pima Silk DK in "Eucalyptus Leaf"). I'm going to go to 8 repeats I think and then start the border.
It's my first shawl and my first lace, but it's coming along quite well and I think it will be nice once it's all blocked.
I also downloaded the "Instagram" app for my phone. It makes everything I do look hipster and arty! So this is a closeup of the stitch pattern. Actually the app did a good job of showing the stitches! Maybe I'll Instagram everything from now on ... not. (The app borderline bugs me... it can be used for comedic effect but I really think it doesn't take too much skill to use it. Real film... now that's skill.)
Well, I've gotta go clean the apartment for guests tonight... Chili cookoff, what fun!
