With all the snow that we have been getting here in West Michigan lately, I have become a hermit. I was leery about even venturing to church on Sunday. As a result I haven't left the house since last Thursday, aside from taking Lizzie out for occasional potty breaks. But oh, while cold, it is glorious out.
While I am home, I have been knitting. (Yeah, I know, big surprise, huh?) I have the first sleeve of the Duchess of Cambridge cardigan about 1/3 done.
And, after finishing my Stephen West Craftsy class, I broke down and began designing a new shawl with the Noro I showed yesterday.
It will be a modified triangle when finished. The white markers on either end indicate two more increase areas. As a result, it will be more of a crescent shape. I think that will stay put better when being worn by more endowed folks. And the lengthened tails will give a bit more to tie or fling over the shoulder. While there are yarn overs in the center and each end, the additional two increase points will be a more invisible "make one" increases. I can't want to see how it turns out. I have written out my rough pattern. It is very rough. I indicate the random garter rows as being made at whatever intervals the knitter likes. I hope it turns out all right.
