Clicking my needles…

The shawl that isn't.

This has been an unproductive few days for me. I began a shawl on New Year’s Day in a white flecked Red Heart yarn. I picked up again on Sunday night and had to start again as I’d lost my row count paper. I’m sure I’ll find it now, but it was no where to be seen on Sunday. I worked about 15 rows on Sunday into Monday in between doing household chores and decided that I really like the pattern. Then I checked the yarn. One of the skeins had several cuts in it and I was getting an end about every 12 – 15 feet. Apparently my cats had a good time one day while I wasn’t home. I ripped that out and put the two skeins that I do have intact aside for another project.

Next up I took some of the Dazzleaire yarn that I knitted my last triangular shawl out of and started the pattern again. I have about 4 skeins of that and I loved the colors. I worked on that on Tuesday and Wednesday while watching TV and it was coming along nicely until I realized that it would still be shorter than I wanted when it was finished. I don’t think that they make this color Dazzleaire any longer so here I go again….ripping it apart.

I think perhaps I’ll just call it a day on this shawl and start another project, one that I plan out a little better. What do you have planned for the weekend?

The yarn I used on my second attempt.


  1. I like what I see…can’t wait to see the finished product.

  2. Thanks, Dru Ann. I loved the quilt you made for Julie. That was a lovely and very thoughtful gift. I love your originality.
