Needles: 2.5 and 3.0 mm Ebony Holz & Stein, 3.0 addi Turbo Lace
Started: October 4, 2007
Finished: February 21, 2008
Modifications: None. Prior to blocking I had entertained the idea of lengthening the sleeves. They grew significantly in the blocking process and are 2-3 inches too long. I may attempt fulling it slightly to see if I can reduce some of the length. One side is not longer than the other. I did a bad job of adjusting it when the photos were being taken.
This weekend I was at the beach for the VFW/Ladies Auxiliary Spring Conference and the drawing for the shawl. Remarkbly I won my own shawl and before I could say anything a member of our post had donated it back and a new drawing was held. The winner lives right here in Columbia and is a good friend of my mom. I'm glad to know that it is going to a good home. I was a little agitated at first, no a lot agitated, but truth be told I can always make another.
I finally made it to Knitting Up A Storm in North Myrtle Beach. Dianne the shop owner was very nice and kept the store open since we were on the way. I purchased some summer weight yarns for shells for mom, a skein of sock yarn and a Lantern Moon bag. Mom gifted me with another style of Lantern Moon bag which was a big surprise. If you're in the area be sure to pay a visit.
