I've been working pretty much exclusively on the shawl. Right now, it is a little over 15" wide unblocked and will turn out to be about 17" blocked. It needs a few more inches, but it is really getting HEAVY! Linen stitch is a pretty dense stitch. I am really pleased with this, and want to finish it just so I can wear it before it gets too hot out! Although we always have the promise of cold evenings in Oregon, even when it is July and August.
Here is a close up of one side of the shawl...one of the cool things about linen stitch is that it looks different depending on which side you're looking at. I have been doing so much linen stitch that I dream about it at night. I think that's another reason why I need to finish it off!
