I did it. I'm done! My last day with LOMAF was on Friday and I start my new position in Portland on Wednesday. Hurray for progress!
I went in for some training last Tuesday and I can already tell how much of an improvement it's going to be! I am SO excited!
Knitting: This is what remained of that huge cone of lace I bought for my wedding shawl. That gigantic amount of yarn was enough to make both my wedding shawl and Mel's wedding shawl with enough leftover to make the following, the Oslo Walk Shawl by Susanna IC. Now my stash entirely consists of yarn bought after May 2011. Yay for stash-busting!
Hawthorne pattern from TC Fall 2010.She has a great variety of difficulties, too.
This particular pattern was pretty easy. You should be able to read charts and read your own knitting--so you can recognize your place in long, long rows, but it would be a good second lace project for someone. A great pattern for a quick gift knit.
Since I already have a pretty scarf in this exact yarn, I'm not sure what exactly I'll do with this shawl. Probably give it to some lucky lady for Christmas...we'll see.
For next time, I'll have a new cardigan to show you. It just needs some buttons :)
