New And Pretty

This is how I usually wear shawls…just balled up around my neck.

This is a gift for my boyfriend’s mom.  She gave me the most amazing self-crafted quilt a year ago, and I’ve been looking around for the right project to gift her.  It’s an original design…I hope she likes it.

Why not let one tail hang free?

…though it does pin nicely too…

It came out about 66 inches across the long edge.

One last look.

Folded up and ready to go!

Of course this means I’ll HAVE to (…I GET to…) make another sample.  It was a very quick project, all things considered.  It took about two weeks, and I’m guessing 15 hours or less of knitting time.

I hope my pictures were a little better this time…I’m still working on it.

What color should I make the next one?  I’m completely undecided.  Purple?  Golden?  Green?  Part of me is thinking Orange?

I guess it doesn’t matter because homework and travel will have me pretty occupied for the next week.

      I’m sure I probably owe you one by now, eh Mom?

      When I find that weird orangey sunset color you love so much I’ll be sure to nab it up to make you something good.
