With thoughts, and occasional rants, on farm, family and crafting. Just to stay sane, I knit. A lot!

Red Rose Triangle
I have been doing a lot of knitting on the Red Roses Triangle this past couple of weeks. And with the new yarn for Betty's jacket ready for me to start knitting that, I tried to spend some quality time on the shawl. It is not a good travel project or a pick up anytime project.
The top edge of the shaw is the bottom of the picture, The needle is too short to stretch it all out, so I bunched up one half to try to show one full half. There is also lots of stretch in the shawl, barely stretched out each half is about 20 inches, and I am only about half through the first ball of the cormo/silk handspun.
I am getting the hang of the lace, and can usually figure out any mistakes I make. These are usually a missing yarn over or a stitch that should have been passed over and wasn't.
I think I am going to love this shawl when its done.
