And the Ziggy Shawl still is undone. When redoing it, I realized that I didn't think it was wide enough. Something I thought when I was knitting it first time around. So I frogged it again, back to the beginning loop.
There are now 5 repeats of the middle pattern & the seed stitch border is 9 stitches wide instead of 5. WAY wider. But I think it'll look much better that way.
Unfortunately, the power strip for the Xbox 360 came a couple of days ago so I'm being tempted away with my game. But I am determined to finish it so I can move on.
I have 2 designs left to finish for my ebook after the Ziggy Shawl. A felted bag & a ruana. Or maybe a vest. I may do the Cockatiel Shawl as a ruana instead. Or maybe both. Sometimes I have to start designing before the actual shape presents itself.
My yarn for the Cockatiel Shawl/Ruana (whatever!) will be coming either later this month or early next month, depending on when Colin gets it done. I'm having him custom dye some beautiful baby alpaca/cashmere/silk in Lutino Cockatiel colors (yellows & a spot of orange). It'll be like all of Colin's work, too beautiful to use, but I'll use it anyway. I have a drawer devoted to his works of art.
