Torsdag

I started a design quite some time ago.
But I never really did anything with it.
I wanted to submit it somewhere and never have, I wanted to self publish it on Ravelry, never really have.

I started it with lace weight yarn.
It was taking forever and got to the point where I was bored with it, but it was soft and delicate and lovely.
But if I was bored with it, would someone else be too?

Yesterday I decided to switch it up.
I chose a fingering weight yarn instead that I picked up a few months ago in New York City at Purl Soho

One of my most favourite things about this shawl is the texture I was able to create with a simple stitch pattern.

So here is my new sample I started in Spud & Chloe Fine
It's hard to get a really good picture in this dark color, especially when it's dark, gloomy & rainy outside.
But I am liking it now. It's going quickly, and easily, and I am much more pleased.
Here is what it looked like originally...Unfinished, but you get the idea.
I'm excited to have a finished one with the border lace :)
