Tale of Two Shawls: Part 2
OWS completed! SO happy with it. No more holes and this is how I've been wearing it:
Where did all of that work go? (See Part 1)
Meanwhile, stop me if you can... I finished the Polaris Shawl. Looks great in this picture, but think how great it will look if I block it!
Then again, I sadly realize that there will be NO points, no double points as in the beautiful pattern picture... I obviously don't know how to cast on loosely. I've accepted it in the OWS but I'm thinking how much MORE I would love this shawl if I frogged the whole thing and REALLY concentrated on a loose cast on. OR I could try to cast on loosely and even complete the bottom beaded part without frogging. I probably have enough to make a second shawl... Let's not be rash. Knit night is Thursday... advice before then?
