My friend Sharon is making the most amazing knitted lace shawl.
I thought, gee, I'll make one too.
So I started it, and promptly got myself in HUGE trouble. Extra stitches galore. At the end of each row I would just knit all the 'extras' (is that an official knitting term?) together into one giant knitted tumor.
After continuing along in this manner for about 40 rows, I had a really interesting (read: Funky!) looking project.
So, I frogged it, and went back to my wedding signature quilt blocks.
Who knew that knitting would inspire me to quilt?! Ha! That's a good one.
I did re-start it though. Check out a finished version at Asplundid Knits.
