Blogger doesn't agree with me.
Aforementioned photo gets added to this post, because it wouldn't situate itself in the right position in the last post. Whoops on me.
Since I made another post for this photo, I might as well talk about the project. :)
The shawl was a pattern I pulled off the internet for free. It's origins are Cascade, or something like that. This is made with about 6 or 7 different yarns total. Throughout the whole shawl is carried a black wool/acrylic boucle and one other type of yarn. Every "whenever I felt like it", I would switch that second yarn to another color, creating the striping.
This was a late Christmas present about 2 or 3 years ago (I forget), but the friend I made it for professes that no matter where she goes, she gets obscene amounts of compliments on it, and has even told me a co-worker of hers would pay me "out the ears" to have one herself. Though I've considered the option, I don't know that the time expenditure, in addition to the colors her co-worker wants would make it feasible. As most of us knitters know, a hand-knit for sale is an expensive piece of work. In a lot of cases it's much less expensive to just find something comparable in retail.
