I’ve been craving a large, somewhat complicated project for the past few weeks. At the same time, the LSG KAL group was talking about doing a late summer lace shawl-along. After a lot of searching on Ravelry, I decided to cast on the Garden of Alla Shawl.
This was my project after finishing chart a. I cast on this morning, and right now I’m halfway through chart b. I’m really loving that this looks fairly complicated, but I can get in rows during Blue’s Clues. This is a tremendous improvement over my last lace project (which is full of mistakes, only a third done, and still sitting in its plastic project bag).
In other news, I really need to take pictures of the newly finished secret socks, so I can submit the pattern. However, 103 degree heat really doesn’t mesh well with wool socks. 😦
