The Alco-shawl

I figure that’s a good name since I’ll surely be consuming alcohol while wearing this shawl. It’s being made to wear to a wedding on St. Patrick’s Day (and hopefully a show afterward) and it’s quickly becoming tedious. This always happens to me. Once the repeats start taking more than 30 or 40 minutes, I get…well…twitchy. We’re up to an hour and 10 per repeat now. I have to force myself to do one a day. I figure if it’s out here on display for all the world to gawk at its incompleteness, maybe I’ll be inspired shamed into finishing it.

Here goes:

There’s actually a few more repeats now than there were when the pic was taken.

That’s my green Kool-Aid yarn! Oh Yeah!

  1. That’s very beautiful….totally worth the effort.

  2. Good to see the yarn came out nicely dyed! What’s that stitch pattern called, by the way, and where can I get my hands on it?
