So. This shawl. It is made of all my handspun (really) (except for some that is supposed to be a sweater for Tim, not sure if this will ever happen). The foot (mine) is there for reference. Anyway, I'm knitting it 'long ways' which means that 1. there are something like 265 stitches on the needles and 2. it takes me about 20 minutes to knit a row if I don't mess up. I thought I might be able to knit this in 20 rows or so but I think I've done about 25 rows and it is barely a scarf wide. So I keep going. It's done in linen stitch (which I really like) and it seems to be working out well. My goal is to have it done to submit to the Lane County Fair in August. Stay tuned.
Jodie is organizing a very fun project: sort of a travelling charity blanket with yarn swap/gifties included. It's a great cause that means a lot to Jodie, and so means a lot to those of us who call Jodie our friend. Visit her Charity Blanket Swap blog to learn more and to sign up.
