Crafting On

Here's my Easy Peasy Shawl, thing of mystery. Does anyone recall that episode of The Waltons where Erin crocheted a present for Grandma that no one could identify? This is like that. I guess I need to wear it with a shawl pin.  Even then, it still won't make much sense, I fear.

Easy Peasy Shawl

I blocked it gently, having a bit of a space constraint, but I think I could do it again and make the bottom lace wider.  I think I need to spring for the blocking mats from Knitpicks, so I can use something besides my old wooden ironing board.  The yarn is pretty, but wasn't good for mittens or socks.  It's so scratchy, but I'm tough enough for Things of Mystery.

Done!

Pardon the stern face. :-)

This post made me smile. I think your face has a quizzical look - perfect for the mysterious :-) Nice to see you! Yes I remember that episode! I loved the Waltons :-) It looks great on, if rather mystifying without a person (!) Well done. Best Wishes Anna (amothershares.wordpress.com)

Thanks! I have come to like neckwarmer things. They certainly use less yarn than long scarves. :-)

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
