Progress on the Short
I reknitted all the frogged yarn on the Short Row shawl, and now I close to finishing the second skein of yarn. I took a photo this morning, and you can see the flair at the bottom of the shawl that is caused by the short rows. I continue to be amazed by this yarn and how the colors have grown on me. I really going to be sorry to let this one go.
Of course I felt that way about the last one, the Wool Peddlar Shawl, but I know that I have plenty of yarn leftover from that project, enough to make at least two more shawls. Moore in East Brunswick this week to see if they have any more of this yarn on their millends table. They don I think Michael was having a sale this week on the yarn, but it still more expensive than the millends, and it was easy to convince myself not to spend any more money. I getting good at that in this economy. So I will wait and see. I am hoping that this shawl will use up just one 1 lb. bag of yarn, leaving me with my other bag to make myself something.
