OK, so I've had an idea. I'm going to abandon the Wild West shawl for now, and do something simpler. I've started a plain triangular garter shawl.
I'm planning on finishing the bottom of the shawl with a very simple garter lace pattern and lace border that I can intuit easily. I am hoping that it will look a little like a traditional Faroese natural brown yarn/garter lace combination, although not with Faroese shaping.
I love the addi turbo I'm working on...go get some if you don't have any...I usually use a wooden needle with a slipperier yarn like this one, but it's a good combination. I'm hooked.
In the meantime, here's a bit more spring for you. The only poem I know by heart is this one
Loveliest of Trees
The ornamental cherry trees are in full bloom here in the low country of South Carolina
I love an allée don't you?
