More evidence that doing tasks pre-coffee is ill-advised: earlier this morning I posted pics of this project and Flickr and Ravelry that I knew were not 100% right but I couldn't put my finger on the problem. Several hours later a RavPal pm'ed me and commented on my unusual flight of fancy. "Did you mean to show the wrong side?" "Why yes, of course, heh heh". D'urr as Peeper-Lou would say. Here's one of the I must be on mushrooms ones:
Neat, but not as impressive as the right side. Maybe that's why it's called the right side...Doing another photo shoot allowed Madame Older Sister to break out her best gray t-shirt and yellow capris for a grellow-tastic shawl how-down in the backyard. She's 14 now and has informed me that 'Tween Thing' is no longer an acceptable moniker...sigh.
Pattern: Leaf Lace Shawl by Evelyn C. Clark
Yarn: Silky Malabrigo in Narciso, 2.25 skeins
Needles: size 9
Mods: None, and I am proud to say that I didn't even make one mistake on it, either, which is a shawl first for me.
Earthchick has observed that I have made the transition from hat lady to shawl lady--and I think she might be correct. This one feels like it just flew off the needles. I have several more lots of Silky Malabrigo that will fit the bill and am thinking that the time is ripe to bust out another Evelyn C. pattern, one that I've made before and do cherish--the Shetland Triangle.
